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.

Chronic Inflammation in IBD and How Anti-TNF Therapy Works


This slideshow describes the role therapies have in controlling inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The risks associated with untreated or undertreated IBD and the side effects of drugs that are commonly used to treat IBD are described. In addition, information is provided for patients who are preparing to start IBD therapy, including aminosalicylates, steroids, immunomodulators, and biologics, with an in-depth discussion of anti-TNF alpha agents.
