Description: Qiangke is a biosimilar version of etanercept (Enbrel).
Enbrel is a recombinant protein with properties of a monoclonal antibody. It is a fusion protein of the Fc (constant region) of a human antibody grafted to the ligand-binding portion of the human TNF receptor. The TNF receptor part of Enbrel functionally substitutes for an anti-TNF antibody. Blocking the activity of TNF impacts both autoimmunity and the immune response to pathogens.
