Biologic Treatment Of Arthritis OKC
Throughout recent decades, there have been great medical advances concerning treating arthritis through biologics. Biologics, or biologic response modifiers, can help patients whose arthritis fails to respond to traditional anti rheumatic drugs or DMARDs.
Biologics are genetically-engineered proteins that come directly from the genes of humans. They help stifle inflammation, a core feature of arthritis. These proteins target specific attributes of the immune system in order to remedy the debilitating pain caused by arthritis. Biologic procedures have been shown to assist slowing the progression of arthritis, even in cases where other types of treatment failed to work. Biologics are part of a movement toward significant improvements in treatment. It’s a shift from passive to active treatment that has yielded and continues to yield, positive results.
