At $6000.00 a shot, you bet Rituximab's use is being encouraged. Aren't monoclonal antibodies a super cash cow for Big Pharma. Added bonus is those are produced on human/mouse hybrid cells. So if MLVs are finally found in ME patients, one could blame it on Rituximab treatment, how convenient.
I am sorry I am so negative, it is great that Rituximab is being so helpful to some ME patients.
