    Default Rituxan and Stiff Person Syndrome

    https://www.docguide.com/study-shows...erson-syndrome

    This document shows that Rituximab, a monoclonal antibody, doesnít help Stiff Person Syndrome, unfortunately. Itís often used off label for MS. So I was hoping for a twofer. Too bad!

    This article is 15 years old and probably of little value but I ran across it and thought it might be of some use anyway--from the British Medical Journal, "Treatment of stiff person syndrome with rituximab":

    If this is a duplication of something that has already been posted, please let me know and I'll have it removed.
