    Rituxin, can it be used to maintain remission after the 2 year plan?

    I've been on Rituxin for 2 years to keep me in remission. I get it every 6 months. (1 mth of treatment, 5 mths of no treatment) I am on my last round and my oncologist says my blood work looks great but where do I go from here. Shes says that there hasn't been any trials on continuing the Rituxin treatments after the 2 year plan so we aren't sure if we can continue with them or not. We do know that it IS helping to keep me in remission though so my question is...does anyone know if you can continue with Rituxin treatments after the 2 year mark? I would really appreciate it because as it stands right now we really don't know where to go on this. I am in the high-risk range of leukemia patients and we really don't want to go back to the 'wait and see' stage. Thank you all, I'm still fighting! and God bless everyone!
