How Do Biologic Injections Work?
Biologic injections (Humira, Enbrel, Taltz, Stelara, Cosentyx) are biologics designed to be injected subcutaneously into the skin. Biologics as a category of medication are powerful substances made of components such as sugars, proteins or even DNA. Sometimes, they can be made from whole cells or tissues. They work by interrupting signals within the immune system. This makes them very powerful but can also increase the risk of infection in the body.
