If you have Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (GPA) or Microscopic Polyangiitis (MPA), you try not to let symptoms get in your way. You try as best you can to do things you want to do, whether it's spending time with friends and family or enjoying time outside.
Rituxan is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for adults with GPA and MPA and is used to help put your disease into remission.
Rituxan can help put your disease into remission
Studies have shown that Rituxan has helped bring on remission for many adults with GPA and MPA. Talk to your doctor about Rituxan. It could help you have fewer bad days when you have a flare and get you into remission so you can have more good days. It is important to remember that Rituxan can cause side effects and not everyone responds to Rituxan in the same way. Some people experience side effects during or after their Rituxan treatment.
Potential serious side effects
Some of these side effects, although rare, can be very serious, including serious infections, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), severe infusion reactions, tumor lysis syndrome (TLS), and severe skin reactions.
For important safety information about Rituxan, please see the Medication Guide.
