How does OMVOH work?

How does OMVOH work?

OMVOH is a condition that happens when your own immune system attacks your gut. This causes inflammation in the lining of the colon. In particular, proteins called interleukin-23 (IL-23) play a key role in causing gut inflammation in ulcerative colitis. This inflammation can lead to symptoms like stomach pain and cramping, bloody stools, and diarrhea. OMVOH is a type of medication called an interleukin-23 antagonist. It blocks IL-23 from working. And when IL-23 can’t work like usual, it helps reduce inflammation. This helps lessen symptoms of ulcerative colitis.
