How Does Golimumab Work?

Golimumab belongs to a group of drugs called tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers. There are different types of TNF, and golimumab binds preferentially to TNF-alpha. TNF-alpha is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that is involved in inflammation and other immune system functions.
 
TNF-alpha can contribute to various diseases by encouraging inflammation. Blocking it helps to decrease inflammation and to relieve the signs and symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
