Biologic therapy is unique because it doesn’t suppress the immune system as a whole; instead, it focuses on specific areas to prevent inflammation. SFENTA is pleased to offer biologic therapy to patients across Southern Florida.

How Biologic Therapy is Performed

Biologic therapy works with the body’s immune system to relieve inflammation. It is given either through an oral pill or intravenously through an injection.

During your appointment, your provider will discuss which method is best for you. 

Both forms of biologic therapy use monoclonal antibodies to target other antibodies, molecules, and cell receptors causing inflammation. Inflammation is often the root cause of chronic conditions, but can be challenging to treat without suppressing the entire immune system. Biologic therapy is able to target specific areas of the immune system without creating further damage.

Benefits of Biologic Therapy

Biologic therapy can help those with chronic conditions improve their life and make symptoms more manageable.

Who is a Candidate for Biologic Therapy?

Candidacy is evaluated by our providers. When you visit our office, you will meet a provider who will review your symptoms and determine if you’re a candidate or if another form of treatment would be more beneficial. Ideal candidates are those with a chronic condition that is affected by inflammation.

Your Biologic Therapy Experience

Prior to your treatment, our staff will evaluate which form of treatment will work best for you. Biologic therapy can be administered through an oral pill or an intravenous injection. Oral medication can be taken at home, and intravenous treatments will be performed in our offices. 

Patients may experience some flu-like symptoms after their treatments, including fever, chills, aches, weakness, and loss of appetite. These should only last a few hours. Biologic therapy often requires more than one treatment for optimum results.
