In brief: Biologic side effec

Humira (adalimumab) is an anti-tumor necrosis factor monoclonal antibody.
It can interfer with the activity of rheumatoid arthritis and crohn's and help patients. It does suppress the immune protection of the body and there are a long list of side effects: the most common is increased risk of infections and we have to monitor you for that. Most of the others on the list can occur and we follow you.
