REMICADE® can help with your treatment goals
REMICADE® is the only biologic proven to deliver rapid relief, lasting symptom control, steroid elimination, and demonstrated healing of the intestinal lining.
In a 1-year clinical trial, patients treated with REMICADE® showed results:
Even when you’re not having a flare, UC can “silently” cause damaging inflammation to the intestinal lining. This inflammation can eventually kill cells within the lining, causing ulcers and other problems.
These photographs show a colon diagnosed at different severities of UC.
Images represent a range of ulcerative colitis severity, not actual patients studied in REMICADE® trials.
More patients also experienced healing of the intestinal lining with REMICADE® at one year compared with those not given REMICADE®
More patients also experienced lasting remission with REMICADE® at one year compared with those not given REMICADE®
And more patients treated with REMICADE® were able to discontinue steroids compared with those not given REMICADE®*
Individual results may vary.
When you have an ongoing condition like moderately to severely active UC, it is important to talk to your doctor about the following treatment goals: quickly control your symptoms, heal the intestinal lining, and keep UC in remission.
In addition, REMICADE® is the only biologic for UC that requires as few as 6 treatments a year after 3 starter doses given at 0, 2, and 6 weeks. After the 3 starter doses, you will remain on maintenance therapy, which is just once every 8 weeks.
*Only your doctor can decide if reducing or stopping steroid use is appropriate for you.
REMICADE® is not right for everyone.
REMICADE® can lower your ability to fight infections. Serious and sometimes fatal events can occur. There have been reports of serious infections including tuberculosis (TB) and infections caused by bacteria, fungi, or viruses that have spread throughout the body. Lymphoma, including a fatal kind called hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma, and other cancers have been reported in children and adults taking REMICADE®. Some people with heart failure should not take REMICADE®. Other serious side effects reported include skin cancer, hepatitis B, liver injury, blood problems, allergic reactions, nervous system problems, or lupus-like syndrome. To learn more about these and other risks, please read the Important Safety Information and the Medication Guide , and talk with your doctor.
