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.
