Worried about my daughter

The doctor thought she had broken a rib when she fell when she had a ...

I'm new on these forums, having just received a probable dx of MS (still need MRI) this week. I don't know much about Rituximab as a treatment for MS, but my 15yo son has been in a TrialNet study for the past two years in which they have studied it with new Type 1 diabetes patients.
