“Infusion” or “infusion therapy” references the administration of medications directly into the blood stream of a patient. It is also known as intravenous or IV infusion therapy. Intravenous, infusion, or injectable methods of drug administration are usually used if oral/pill medications are inappropriate, insufficient, or unavailable. Several of the newest medications are derived or made from living cells (biologic) and cannot be consumed orally, like a pill, because they lose their effectivity after exposure to the GI tract. Biologic medications are commonly prescribed to address IBD (inflammatory bowel diseases), including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease and other autoimmune conditions.
