    Department of Medicine, School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    BMC Musculoskelet Disord 15:178. 2014
    ..CD20 is not expressed on mature plasma cells and accordingly rituximab does not have immediate effects on immunoglobulin levels. However, after rituximab some patients develop hypogammaglobulinaemia...

    Rona M Smith
    Department of Renal Medicine, Addenbrooke s Hospital, Hills Road, Cambridge CB20QQ, UK
    Arthritis Res Ther 14:210. 2012
    ..As rare diseases, treatment advances in vasculitis depend on international collaborative research networks both to establish an evidence base for newer agents and to develop recommendations for patient management...

    J Autoimmun 57:24-9. 2015
    ..IgG replacement for sustained hypogammaglobulinemia with recurrent infections appeared to be useful in this series. The IgG replacement course is prolonged in most patients, but IgG recovery is reported. ..

    Addenbrooke s Hospital, Cambridge, UK
    Arthritis Rheum 64:3760-9. 2012
    ..However, further relapse is common, and maintenance strategies are required. The aim of this study was to reduce relapse rates using a fixed-interval rituximab re-treatment protocol...

    ..Rituximab is associated with an increased risk of hypogammaglobulinemia but recovery of IgG level can occur. IgG monitoring may be useful for patients receiving rituximab. ..

    Nat Rev Rheumatol 6:547-52. 2010
    ..The complexities of clinical trials in lupus nephritis have impeded the demonstration of the efficacy of new agents, but if these difficulties can be overcome, there is a real chance that outcomes in lupus nephritis will improve...
