If you've been diagnosed with chronic severe plaque psoriasis, it's good to know that REMICADE® delivers outstanding results. In fact, in a clinical study, 80% of chronic patients achieved at least 75% improvement at 10 weeks. In another clinical study, some patients saw improvement in as few as 2 weeks. Individual results may vary.
REMICADE® has been used to treat more than 1.3 million patients worldwide across all approved uses.
REMICADE® is given as a 2-hour IV infusion by a healthcare professional, so someone is always there during your treatment, and for a period of time afterward, to monitor you for side effects. After the 3 starter doses, you may need REMICADE® only once every 8 weeks–as few as 6 times a year.
REMICADE®, like other medicines that affect your immune system, is a strong medication that can cause serious side effects. Please read the Important Safety Information  and the Medication Guide  for REMICADE®, and discuss any questions or symptoms with your doctor.
Ask your dermatologist if REMICADE® is right for you.
Only your doctor can recommend a course of treatment after checking your health condition. REMICADE® (infliximab) can cause serious side effects such as lowering your ability to fight infections. Some patients, especially those 65 years and older, have had serious infections caused by viruses, fungi or bacteria that have spread throughout the body, including tuberculosis (TB) and histoplasmosis. Some of these infections have been fatal. Your doctor should monitor you closely for signs and symptoms of TB during treatment with REMICADE®.
Unusual cancers have been reported in children and teenage patients taking TNF-blocker medicines. Hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma, a rare form of fatal lymphoma, has occurred mostly in teenage or young adult males with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis who were taking REMICADE® and azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine. For children and adults taking TNF blockers, including REMICADE®, the chances of getting lymphoma or other cancers may increase.
You should discuss any concerns about your health and medical care with your doctor.
