Date:11/6/2007

E has satisfied unmet therapeutic needs and resulted in significant life-changing improvements in patients," said Thomas F. Schaible, PhD, Vice President, Medical Affairs, Centocor, Inc. "Almost a decade later, REMICADE continues to positively affect patients' lives and Centocor continues its commitment to developing novel and important therapies for diseases of the immune system."

"Around the world, the treatment of patients with inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, has been transformed by the availability of REMICADE," said Robert J. Spiegel, M.D., chief medical officer and senior vice president, Schering-Plough Research Institute. "Schering-Plough is committed to bringing the benefits of REMICADE, with its proven efficacy and rapid onset of action, to relieve the suffering of patients with these chronic inflammatory conditions."

Important firsts for REMICADE include:

-- In August 1998, REMICADE was approved on an accelerated basis for the

active Crohn's disease and fistulizing, active Crohn's disease in

patients who have not responded to conventional therapy.

-- In December 2001, REMICADE became the first TNF-alpha inhibitor

approved in Japan for the treatment of moderate-to-severe Crohn's
