Answer

Tumor Necrosis Factor Blockers

Anti–tumor necrosis factor (TNF)–α therapy may be considered in refractory cases of ReA.

Infliximab (Remicade)

Infliximab is a chimeric IgG1κ monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to the soluble and transmembrane forms of TNF-α and inhibits the binding of TNF-α to its receptors.
