An uncontrolled trial of rituximab for antibody associated paraneoplastic neurological syndromes.

Anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody (rituximab) is effectively used in the treatment of B-cell lymphomas. Recent reports in the literature suggest that antibody associated autoimmune disorders may respond to rituximab. We therefore treated nine patients with anti-Hu or anti-Yo associated paraneoplastic neurological syndromes (PNS) with a maximum of four monthly IV infusions of rituximab (375mg/m(2)). In this uncontrolled, unblinded trial of rituximab, three patients improved > or =1 point on the Rankin Scale (RS). One patient with limbic encephalitis improved dramatically (RS from 5 to 1). Further studies of rituximab in autoantibody associated PNS are warranted.
