hioprine monotherapy who died following a colectomy and one patient receiving REMICADE combination therapy who was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Serious infections were reported as follows: 8 in the azathioprine monotherapy group, 4 in the REMICADE monotherapy group and 6 in the REMICADE combination therapy group.

In 1998 REMICADE became the first anti-TNF-alpha therapy approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderately to severely active Crohn's disease for the reduction of the signs and symptoms in patients who have an inadequate response to conventional therapy. During the past decade, REMICADE has also become the first and only anti-TNF-alpha therapy that the FDA has approved for the treatment of ulcerative colitis, a related inflammatory bowel disease, and pediatric Crohn's disease.

Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the colon and large intestine that affects approximately 500,000 people in the United States. Crohn's disease can lead to frequent hospitalizations, surgery and loss of work productivity.
