TNF Inhibitors… what they are and what they do in arthritis treatment


Inhibitors of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) are protein-based drugs, often called "biological", which are a pillar of therapy for diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. They work in the treatment of arthritis by blocking a chemical called tumor necrosis factor, which is a major cause of inflammation. There are five currently available TNF inhibitors, 4 administered by subcutaneous injection and one by intravenous injection. They all have similar potential side effects.
