A biologic medicine is given via an injection under the skin or into the blood.
Biological therapies are only given to people who have already tried other treatments appropriate to their condition and not responded well to them.
Watch this video for practical hints and tips from a specialist nurse and patient, who is receiving biologic treatment, which may help make self-injecting your biologic medication more comfortable for you.
Your healthcare professional should show you how to prepare and inject your treatment. Do not inject yourself or someone else until you have been shown how to inject the right way.
