On this podcast episode, I cover etanercept pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions and much more.
Etanercept is classified as a DMARD but is different from older DMARDs in that it is a biologic agent and needs to be injected.
Vaccination assessment in patients is important prior to initiating etanercept due to the fact that the medication may blunt the effectiveness of the vaccines.
Immunosuppression from etanercept can lead to an increased risk for infection and malignancy.
