How HUMIRA works for ankylosing spondylitis.
Watch this short video to get a better understanding of how HUMIRA targets and blocks a specific source of inflammation that contributes to the symptoms of AS.
Here’s how HUMIRA works:
- With AS, your body overproduces an inflammation-causing protein called tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha)
- This inflammation can cause the back pain and stiffness that you are experiencing
- HUMIRA works by targeting and blocking a specific source of inflammation that contributes to AS symptoms
- Because TNF blockers, including HUMIRA, affect the immune system, they can lower the ability to fight infections and may cause other serious side effects
