What is Rituximab?

Rituximab is a cancer (antineoplastic) medication. It works by interfering with the growth of cancer cells by slowing their growth and spread in the body.

Rituximab is also used in the treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Additionally, this medication can be used alone or in combination with other chemotherapeutic drugs. Specifically, very good results have been seen when used in combination with the CHOP chemotherapy regimen (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone).

Rituximab is sold as Rituxan® in the United States.
