Simponi ARIA IV Infusion Therapy

What is Simponi ARIA?

Simponi ARIA (golimumab) is a biologic drug used to treat adults with moderate to severe ​rheumatoid arthritis (RA) (in combination with methotrexate), ​active psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and ​active ankylosing spondylitis (AS)

How does Simponi ARIA work?

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha is a protein in the immune system that helps regulate immune cells and inflammation in the body. Patients with RA, PsA, or AS have bodies that produce too much TNF-alpha, which can cause the immune system to mistakenly attack cells in the joints, spine, and skin. Remicade reduces inflammation and symptoms of these conditions by blocking TNF-alpha in the body. 

How is Simponi ARIA administered?

Simponi ARIA is administered intravenously. The first two infusions are given during Week 0 and Week 4, then once every 8 weeks thereafter. Each infusion takes about 30 minutes. Doses are based on body weight.
