    Small scale trial but very encouraging and interesting results

    A randomized controlled trial of rituximab following failure of antiviral therapy for hepatitis C virus-associated cryoglobulinemic vasculitis.

    Should have mentioned FATIGUE being present in 2/3 of Hep C patients, amongst other clinical presentations. Would be interesting to know if that changes after Rituximab treatment ...

    Cryoglobulin production present in over a third.
