The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "These agents block the proinflammatory cascade that triggers the activation and proliferation of T lymphocytes at the level of the intestine, therefore reestablishing the balance between the pro- and anti-inflammatory messages. All 7 biologics showing clinical benefits in inflammatory bowel disease are monoclonal antibodies. The following systematic review discusses the pharmacokinetics and efficacy of the tumor necrosis factor blockers infliximab, adalimumab, certolizumab pegol, and golimumab."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "In addition, we describe the alpha(4) integrin inhibitors natalizumab and vedolizumab, which are directed against cell adhesion molecules, as well as the interleukin 12/23 blocker ustekinumab."
