This is very worrying…

I picked this up via a Tweet from a group called @Hodgkintoday who pass on snippets and links to research in the field.

This early study links the use of Rituximab to an increased risk of melanoma.

Now, there are side effects to pretty well any drug that you can think of, but it would be a supreme irony if one were to get a melanoma as a direct result of taking a drug to assist in a different cancer.

One to ask my new consultant next week, I think.
