Part Description

LP35095-6   inFLIXimab
Infliximab is a genetically engineered immunoglobulin 1 murine-human chimeric monoclonal antibody against tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα). The murine portion is the part of the antibody that binds to TNFα while the human portion preserves functional immune capacity. Infliximab is used to treat Crohn's disease and, in particular, in treating the closure of intestinal or perianal fistulas in patients with acute intestinal involvement who have been unresponsive to other treatments. TNFα is a cytokine that acts to increase the inflammatory process in CD, RA, psoriasis and spondylarthropathy. The primary mechanism of infliximab is to combine with the inactivate soluble transmembrane TNFα. However, infliximab also modulates TNFα-producing cells through complement fixation of antibody-dependent T lymphocytes and monocytes by binding them to the IgG1 fc portion of infliximab. There is also a subsequent down-regulation of other inflammation-producing cytokines and a reduction of the level of chemokines and endothelial adhesion molecules. Negative side effects of infliximab include fibrostenosing CD and sepsis.[PMID:18360638] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
