Remicade is a chimeric monoclonal antibody used for the treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

What is Remicade?

Remicade (also known by its generic name infliximab) is an anti-TNF-alpha drug that was approved by the FDA in May 2005 to treat psoriatic arthritis and in September 2006 to treat chronic severe psoriasis. It is also approved for ankylosing spondylitis, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn's disease.

For patients with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, Remicade is administered in a doctor's office via intravenous infusion at 0, 2, and 6 weeks, then every 8 weeks.
