How is Inflectra different from Remicade?

Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 5 May 2016

Inflectra (infliximab-dyyb) by Celltrion is the second U.S. biosimilar approved by the FDA. Inflectra is classified as a tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blocker and is biosimilar to Janssen’s Remicade (infliximab), originally approved in 1998.

A biosimilar must have no clinically meaningful safety or effectiveness differences from the reference product, but it is not considered identical like a generic product.

Inflectra can be prescribed for the same uses as Remicade, including rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ankylosing spondylitis (spine arthritis), ulcerative colitis, psoriatic arthritis, and plaque psoriasis.
