Immunomodulators have shown great promise in regard to prevention and treatment of various disorders ranging from autoimmune, inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohns Disease and infectious diseases. Several agents exist with different mechanisms of action, indications and side effect profiles. The two general categories are Immunosuppressive and Immunostimulatory agents. The goal has been to increase immune system specificity while minimizing toxicity peripherally and to other organs. Infectious diseases are considered immunological disorders and neoplastic diseases are involved in an immunosuppressive state. Immunomodulators are able to stimulate natural and defensive mechanisms which are of potential clinical benefit. While they are highly beneficial, their side effects and toxicity profile can often limit their use. There are also potential drug interactions. This presentation summarizes a number of immunomodulators with their clinical indications, mechanism of action and toxicity profiles.
