Anti-TNF biologics are one kind of treatment option for adults with moderate to severe RA
Anti-TNF biologics work by blocking the action of TNF-alpha (tumor necrosis factor-alpha), a protein made by your body’s immune system. In certain autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), there is too much TNF-alpha, which can cause the immune system to attack parts of the body. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints. Over time, RA can damage joints.
SIMPONI ARIA® is an anti-TNF biologic
SIMPONI ARIA® targets, binds with, and blocks excess TNF-alpha, an underlying cause of inflammation. SIMPONI ARIA®, taken with methotrexate, helps control the signs and symptoms of moderate to severe RA, helps stop further joint damage, and may allow you to perform daily activities with less difficulty. Individual results may vary.
It is important to know that blocking too much TNF-alpha can lessen your body’s ability to fight infection.
SIMPONI ARIA® targets, binds with, and blocks excess TNF-alpha, helping to control inflammation.
SIMPONI ARIA® is given as an infusion
SIMPONI ARIA® is prepared and given as a 30-minute infusion through a needle placed in your vein, usually in your arm. After 2 starter doses, 4 weeks apart, SIMPONI ARIA® is given once every 8 weeks - that's as few as 6 times a year.
