Hello- I have a friend who was been fighting MS for probably 20+ years now. He said a recent MRI shows lesions in his brain ( up until now the lesions had been in the lower body. The suggestion by his doctor is that he now undergo 2 treatments, 2 weeks apart of Rituxan. He was told it may help- it may not. Is there anyone out there with some feedback? Anyone who has tried this and could comment? Any suggestions can you make? Side effects? He has tried sooo many different courses of treatment- traditional drugs, bee stings, 2 long trips to Greece for chemo treatment there for MS- homeopathics, macrobiotics....thank you.
