REMICADE(R) Becomes First Anti-TNF Biologic Therapy to Treat One Million Patients Worldwide
Date:11/6/2007

HORSHAM, Pa. and KENILWORTH, N.J., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Centocor, Inc., Schering-Plough Corporation, and Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation announced today that an estimated one million patients have now been treated with REMICADE(R) (infliximab), the leading anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha therapy worldwide. In fact, REMICADE has been used to treat more patients worldwide than all other anti-TNF-alpha agents combined. REMICADE was the first anti-TNF-alpha treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), when it was indicated for the treatment of acute moderate to severe Crohn's disease in 1998. The indication for Crohn's disease was quickly followed by additional indications, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

"Rheumatoid arthritis derailed my life," said Ellen Shmueli, RA patient. "Simple tasks like lifting my child or holding a pen were nearly impossible. It's hard to put into words what REMICADE has meant to me."

Through a long line of firsts in the biotechnology industry, the history of REMICADE includes 15 FDA indications spanning across inflammatory diseases that include Crohn's disease (adult and pediatric), ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis.

"This significant milestone was achieved as a result of nearly three decades of expanding and improving access for people living with life-altering inflammatory diseases," said Neal Fowler, President, Centocor, Inc. "In partnership with Centocor R&D, we will continue our pledge of bringing the promise of biomedicine to physicians and patients through continued research and development, REMICADE and our promising pipeline portfolio."

REMICADE has been studied in more than 37 clinical trials, evaluating its use in a wide variety of diseases of the immune system and is approved for use in 88 countries.

"Having been a part of its initial approval in 1998, I have personally witnessed how REMICAD
