What is Cimzia?
Cimzia (certolizumab pegol) is a biologic medication prescribed for the treatment of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, plaque psoriasis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Autoimmune diseases occur when the body’s immune system mistakes the body’s tissues as invaders and mounts an immune defense characterize by harmful inflammation. Cimzia suppresses that immune response to provide symptomatic relief and disease control. It is not a cure.
Cimzia is administered via subcutaneous self-injection using pre-filled syringes. It is prescribed only for adults.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Stress appears to cause autoimmune diseases, and living with an autoimmune disease can cause a great deal of disease-aggravating stress, creating a vicious circle. Simplefill can help break that pattern by reducing the stress associated with the high cost of medications like Cimzia that patients rely on to manage autoimmune diseases. We do that by connecting people who need help paying for their Cimzia with the programs and organizations that offer that assistance.
How Does Cimzia Work?
For people with painful and stress-inducing autoimmune diseases, controlling inflammation is key. Cimzia is a man-made drug classified as a biologic because it works in the same way as antibodies produced naturally by the body’s immune system. Cimzia inhibits the action of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and is therefore further classified as an anti-TNF biologic.
TNF causes and exacerbates inflammation, so by blocking TNF, Cimzia reduces inflammation and the painful symptoms it causes in those with autoimmune diseases.
