What makes biologic therapy unique is its ability to target specific areas of the immune system to prevent inflammation rather than suppress the entire system. The Barranco Clinic can offer this advanced form of treatment in our five Central Florida office locations. 

How Biologic Therapy is Performed

Biologic therapy is a modern treatment method that can work with the immune system to help relieve inflammation. The treatment is administered through an oral pill or an intravenous injection performed by our staff. An evaluation with our provider will determine which method will be most effective for you.

Biologic therapy in both forms uses monoclonal antibodies. These antibodies can target other existing antibodies, molecules, and cell receptors that cause inflammation. Inflammation is targeted because it is often the source of chronic conditions. In most cases, it can be challenging to treat inflammation without causing damage to the entire immune system, which is what makes biologic therapy so unique.

Benefits of Biologic Therapy

Biologic therapy offers patients who experience chronic conditions an opportunity for treatment that doesn’t suppress the entire immune system. This can help patients improve their quality of life and manage their symptoms more easily. Most patients can maintain a more active lifestyle and see a reduction in the days of work or school missed as well as doctor’s appointments. It can also reduce the number of asthma attacks they experience for patients with asthma.

Who Is a Candidate for Biologic Therapy?

To determine if you are a candidate for biologic therapy, you will need to visit our office. One of our providers will review your symptoms and determine if biological therapy is right for you or if another form of treatment would be more beneficial. The most common candidates are those with a chronic condition affected by inflammation, including certain skin conditions, asthma, and nasal polyps.
