A multidisciplinary working group has developed a practice guideline containing various recommendations on the responsible and efficient use of biologicals. These biologicals include both soluble immune-receptor proteins and monoclonal antibodies that are aimed at immune mediators, receptors or cells. They are produced by biotechnology. Biologicals are used to treat patients with immune-mediated inflammatory disorders (IMIDs) such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), psoriatic arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, uveitis and sarcoidosis. This article summarises the most important recommendations contained in the practice guideline. The practice guideline is intended for members of the medical profession in addition to patients, who are considering, or are already, using biologicals
