What Is Ruxience?

Ruxience is a CD20-directed cytolytic antibody used to treat certain autoimmune diseases and types of cancer. It is an FDA- approved biosimilar to Rituxan (rituximab).

Patients should be under the care of a clinician experienced with using rituximab for the specific indication they are being treated for.

Pretreatment immunizations

When feasible, administer appropriate immunizations 4 weeks or more before starting therapy.

Prophylaxis against opportunistic infection and viral reactivation may be warranted during and up to 12 months after completion of rituximab therapy.

Premedication

The manufacturer’s labeling recommends premedicating about 30 minutes prior to administration with acetaminophen, an antihistamine, and methylprednisolone 100 mg (IV) or equivalent for adults.
