Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: June 28, 2019)
The rate of change from baseline to 12 months in total UMSARS I score [ Time Frame: up to 360 days ]
TUMSARS, Unified Multiple System Atrophy Rating Scale,a functional score of symptoms and ability to undertake activities of daily living usually consisting of 12 questions (we omitted question 11 [sexual function] because the question was poorly designed for women). Each question was scored from 0 to 4, with a higher score indicating a lower functional status
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE Same as current
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: June 28, 2019)
Change in immunology function [ Time Frame: up to 360 days ]
Use the flow cytometry to measure the change at baseline, 90,180, 360 days after drug use

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Rituximab for Multiple System Atrphy
Official Title  ICMJE Rituximab Therapy for the Patients With Multiple Syetem Atrophy
Brief Summary Neuroprotective or anti-inflammatory strategies are invaluable in multiple system atrophy (MSA) due to its rapid progression with fatal prognosis. We evaluated the efficacy of rituximab in patients with MSA-cerebellar type (MSA-C).
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 2
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

Experimental: Rituximab group Drug: Rituximab will be administered as 100 mg IV, once per week for 3 consecutive weeks. Continued dosage was dependent on the percentage of circulating CD19 B-cell counts from patients . Whenever it reached 1% of total lymphocyte population, rituximab 100 mg was reinfused

Placebo Comparator: Control group Patients will receive usual care and drug use.

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Multiple System Atrophy
Intervention  ICMJE Drug: Rituximab
A lower dosage of rituximab for multiple system atrophy
