A subclass of pharmaceuticals referred to as disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) is biologics. Non-biologic or conventional DMARDs, like methotrexate, are medicines formed of tiny molecules created in a lab from chemicals. Fuse Infusion is number 1 in providing biologic infusion. Large molecules known as biologics are created by living cells. Both work to ward off the symptoms of inflammation but in distinct ways. Traditional DMARDs work by suppressing the immune system as a whole, but biologics work by blocking certain immunological components, like proteins that trigger inflammation. Biologic infusion therapy is a new and advanced treatment procedure for the administration of biologics into the human body. Compared to traditional DMARDs, biologics are more expensive, complex, and difficult to manufacture. They also do not come in pill form, unlike small-molecule medications. Some come in the form of self-injections that require an autoinjector and prefilled vial. In a doctor’s office or in a clinical setting, some are administered via intravenous (IV) infusion.
How Fuse Infusion will support you during Biologic Infusion Therapy?At Fuse Infusion, we offer biological infusion therapy to patients who are diagnosed with chronic autoimmune diseases. We offer treatment in a safe and secure setting and ensure our full support during the infusion procedure. We have highly-qualified and expert medical professionals who keep a constant monitoring and eye on you for any allergies or side effects after receiving biological infusions.
Biologic Medicines for Chronic Autoimmune DiseasesIn ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and other inflammatory bowel diseases, inflammation is frequently treated with biologics, which are drugs created by the genetic engineering of live organisms. When other medications, such as immunosuppressants (such as mercaptopurine and azathioprine) and steroids (such as prednisolone and budesonide), have not worked, they are frequently a choice. The proteins and enzymes in your body that cause inflammation and the symptoms of IBD are the targets of biologics. Injections, tablets, and infusions are all options for administering biologic medications. The biological type you are prescribed will determine how your drug is administered. Your medical professional will examine you and prescribe you the treatment option which will be best suitable for you. Biologic infusion therapy is used in the treatment of chronic autoimmune diseases. Some of the biological medications that we use to treat chronic diseases are:
- Vedolizumab (Entyvio)
- Infliximab (Remicade and biosimilars Inflectra, Remsima and Flixabi
- Ustekinumab (Stelara-first dose only – then subcutaneous injections)
