What is the difference between Inflectra and Remicade?

Medically reviewed by Last updated on Sep 16, 2019.

Official Answer


Inflectra (infliximab-dyyb) is a biosimilar to Janssen’s Remicade (infliximab)

Inflectra (infliximab-dyyb) and Remicade (infliximab) belong to the class of drugs called tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alfa inhibitors.

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.
