Animation - Chronic Inflammation in IBD and How Anti-TNF Therapy Works
Biologics are a relatively new class of drugs used to treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Some biologics known as anti-TNF alpha agents work by specifically targeting a molecule made by the body, TNF-alpha. This animation describes what TNF-alpha is, how it causes inflammation in IBD, and how anti-TNF alpha therapies work to reduce inflammation caused by this molecule.
