Rituximab is effective in patients with an inadequate response to MTX for whom conventional DMARDS have failed or have one or more TNFα blocking agents. The safety of rituximab is still being defined. It is hoped that this statement, based on the best evidence available at this time, and modified by expert opinion, will facilitate the optimal use of these agents.
