In recent years, biologic medicines, including vaccines, have made a huge impact in the field of pharmacotherapeutics, showing treatment implications for autoimmune diseases and cancers. These treatments are being used increasingly for emergent conditions. This presentation discusses the mechanisms and the expanded use of these medications in acute care. An examination of the circumstances in which they should be considered and the potential side effects is also included. This discussion also offers insight into the development of biosimilar drugs, which aim to increase accessibility and reduce costs for this unique group of therapeutics.
Additional subjects covered in this presentation include:
- Introduction of biologics to market
- Safe use of biologics
- Newest findings on biologics
