How does HUMIRA work?

The protein TNF-alpha is believed to be part of your body’s natural processes involved in creating inflammation, and in some cases, excess inflammation. When used as prescribed, HUMIRA targets and blocks TNF-alpha, which can help reduce excess inflammation associated with PsA.
