Biologic linked to noninfectious pneumonia

Full Article


In a recent study, it has been found that ustekinumab (Stelera ) is associated with noninfectious pneumonia. All cases reported during the eight-year span had serious outcomes and supported temporal association. Some of these cases occurred after just one dose of ustekinumab, leading to the additional warning for ustekinumab users regarding the elevated risk of developing noninfectious pneumonia.
