Humira is a tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor that reduces the effects of a substance in the body that can lead to inflammation. The active substance of adalimumab is a monoclonal antibody designed to recognize and bind TNF, a natural cytokine that plays a key role in the inflammatory process and immune response. Adalimumab targets and blocks the cause of inflammation by specifically binding to TNF-alpha, a protein that causes inflammation, which helps reduce inflammation in the body that can lead to symptoms of ulcerative colitis.
