What is Simponi?
Simponi is a medication that contains golimumab, a biologic molecule that inhibits the activity of the inflammation-causing cytokine TNF-alpha. It is used to reduce inflammation that is the main cause of symptoms in a range of rheumatological and gastrointestinal conditions.
How does this product work?
Simponi belongs to a group of medications known commonly as TNF blockers. These medications are used in the treatment of inflammatory conditions and target the important inflammation mediator TNF-alpha. Simponi is a human monoclonal antibody that binds to TNF-alpha with high affinity and thus prevents the binding of TNF-alpha to its receptors.
With a non-intrusive dosage schedule and suitability for patients to self-administer this medication, Simponi is convenient for your patients to use to treat their rheumatological or gastrointestinal disease(s).
