Good news! I have come across another study with Cryoglobulinemia Vasculitis. I am in the process of contacting all the involved parties to further investigation how this originated and why. It has been funded by major companies and supported by the National Institute of Health. That's great news. This gives us hope knowing how difficult it is to get to this point with any rare disease. This may have come from the vantage point of the drug company for Rituximab doing research for this drug. Big business.

I have had experience with Rituximab if you would like to know how it affected me. Perhaps there are others here that can also chime in. Opinions welcome.
The B-cell depleting agent rituximab (Rituxan) effectively alleviates serious manifestations of cryoglobulinemic vasculitis, two groups of researchers found.
