What Is a Biologic?

 

Biologics are targeted therapies made from living organisms or natural sources. Biologic therapy involves injections every few weeks or so that are tailored to the individual. Biologics help normalize your immune system by controlling immune responses that lead to inflammation. There are biologic treatments available for people with moderate-to-severe asthma or atopic dermatitis (eczema).

If you’ve tried treatments without success, consider asking your doctor about biologics and whether one of these therapies are right for you.
