    My immunologist rec against Rituxan. Something about my CVID and Rituxan impact on B cells. He thinks it would leave me to open for infection due to CVID.

    They are concerned about depletion of B cells with me also - due to age. Therefore, possibly causing infections to begin. That was with Ocrevus, but since they are virtually the same medicine, the Neuro may say the same thing about Rituxan.
