PATIENTS - BIOLOGIC EDUCATION

THE DISEASE:
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Spondyloarthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis are all autoimmune diseases.

Your body’s immune system protects you from infection by attacking bacteria and viruses that invade your body. In autoimmune diseases your immune system stays stimulated and over production of TNF by some immune cells results in an exaggerated immune and inflammatory response and is one of the main culprits that lead to joint and bone damage.

BIOLOGICS: Biologics are disease modifying agents.
