What is adalimumab?

Humira 40 mg/0.8 mL Sub-Q Kit
Drug Name: ADALIMUMAB - INJ
Other Brand Names: Humira
Uses: This medication is used to reduce pain and swelling due to certain types of arthritis (e.g., rheumatoid, psoriatic, and ankylosing spondylitis). This medication is also used to treat psoriasis (plaque-type). It works by blocking a protein (tumor necrosis factor or TNF) found in the body's immune system that causes joint swelling and damage. Early treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with more aggressive therapy, including this type of medication (TNF blockers), helps to reduce further joint damage and preserve joint function. This medication is also used to treat a bowel condition called Crohn's disease. It is used in cases that are moderate to severe and/or keep coming back.
