About REMICADE

REMICADE was the first anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha treatment to be approved in three different therapeutic areas: gastroenterology, rheumatology and dermatology.  REMICADE has demonstrated broad clinical utility with indications in Crohn's disease (CD), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), ulcerative colitis (UC), pediatric Crohn's disease (PCD) and psoriasis (PsO).  The safety and efficacy of REMICADE have been well established in clinical trials over the past 17 years and through commercial experience with more than one million patients treated worldwide.

In the U.S., REMICADE is approved for the following indications:

  • Reducing signs and symptoms, inhibiting the progression of structural damage and improving physical function in patients with moderately to severely active RA, when administered in combination with methotrexate.  
  • Reducing signs and symptoms in patients with active AS.
  • Reducing signs and symptoms and inducing and maintaining clinical remission in adult and pediatric patients with moderately to severely active CD who have had an inadequate response to conventional therapy.  
  • Reducing the number of draining enterocutaneous and rectovaginal fistulas and maintaining fistula closure in adult patients with fistulizing CD.  
  • Reducing signs and symptoms, inducing and maintaining clinical remission and mucosal heal
