Why don't cancer doctors prescribe zevalin (ibritumomab tiuxetan)?

Why don't cancer doctors prescribe zevalin (ibritumomab tiuxetan)?

Used: Doctors do prescribe zevalin (ibritumomab tiuxetan) (ibritumomab). It is a useful medication, but the dosing involved a complex test dosing which was doable, but not available at all centers. That is better now. Also there is not "head-to-head" data vs the "naked" cd20 monoclonal antibody Rituximab vs. Zevalin, (ibritumomab tiuxetan) so some data are hard to interpret. It if more often used as consolidation or relapse therapy. ...Read more

What is love?

What is love?

A small word: with a universe of meanings. "In love" is an obsessive infatuation. It feels great but it's overrated as being 'true love.' Mature love is different. The object of love is priceless, greater than your most valuable possession. But you don't cling or control- you want the beloved to have the best, even if it costs you. The great teachers agree: Love yourself and love the other just as much. ...Read more
