Biologics Therapy:

During the past decade biologic therapies such as monoclonal antibodies and fusion proteins have revolutionized the management of rheumatic diseases. Presently biologics are expensive, but mainstay therapies in the treatment of many rheumatic conditions. Their use has indeed allowed for a better prognosis in several rheumatic diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus erythematosus) and to obtain a clinical remission. Biologics approved in India at present are –

• Intravenous: Infliximab, Rituximab, Tocilizumab, Abatacept
• Sub-cutaneous: Adalimumab, Etanercept, Secukinumab
• Oral: Tofacitinib, Baricitinib
