Your first dose will be RITUXAN® (rituximab) with CHOP or CVP chemotherapy. If you were able to receive and tolerate at least one full dose of RITUXAN, you may receive RITUXAN HYCELA™ (rituximab/hyaluronidase human) with CHOP or CVP chemotherapy during future cycles of treatment. Chemotherapy and RITUXAN HYCELA work together in different ways to fight cancer. The goal in using this combination of drugs is to keep your cancer from getting worse.
You will have up to 8 cycles, or rounds, of treatment. Each cycle will last 21 days. Treatment occurs on the first day of each cycle and is followed by 20 days of rest and recovery.
