averorx circle

When your patient is diagnosed with a chronic illness, it can be difficult to know where to go next. Coming up with a plan that your patient will consistently follow can be a challenge. Fortunately, TNF blockers have been shown to help patients with a variety of conditions, such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Learn more about how this type of infusion therapy works:

 

What is TNF?

Tumor necrosis factor is a protein in blood that has the potential to cause inflammation in various parts of the body. TNF can be triggered by a normal immune response. However, when too much TNF is created, the inflammation can cause damage to internal organs. Fortunately, anti-TNF therapies can help. 

 

How TNF Blockers Work

Anti-TNF therapies, also known as TNF blockers, are infused into a vein. The time they take can vary between products and patients, but it’s typically between 30 minutes and 3 hours. 

 

Conditions TNF Blockers Treat

Overproduction of TNF can lead to various diseases. TNF blockers are FDA-approved to treat these conditions, such as:

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Plaque Psoriasis
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Ulcerative Colitis
