AS Patient on CIMZIA®

I was having more and more difficulty doing the things I did on a daily basis. Things that I took for granted—for example, just tying shoes—were getting hard to do. I did what I had to do, to do my job, but I was limited. And everybody could see it.

Ankylosing Spondylitis Treatment With CIMZIA

Symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) can initially seem like the result of an everyday injury, since lower back pain is fairly common for many people. You may think symptoms aren’t serious at first. But it’s important to take an active role in finding ankylosing spondylitis treatment that works for you. Early treatment is key to managing ankylosing spondylitis. If your back pain lasts more than 3 months, improves with exercise, and worsens when you’re resting, don’t wait—ask your rheumatologist if CIMZIA may be right for you.

The Logic of a Biologic Like CIMZIA

CIMZIA is a biologic, meaning it is a drug derived from living sources that copy the effects of substances naturally made by your body’s immune system. As an anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) biologic, CIMZIA works to block TNF, which may cause or worsen inflammation.

What is The CIMZIA Difference? Its molecular structure makes CIMZIA the only biologic treatment of its kind for adults with ankylosing spondylitis.

As an injectable treatment, CIMZIA treats ankylosing spondylitis where it starts, inside the body. Learn how the physical results of inflammation are only part of the impact of your AS symptoms.
