Remicade Infusion Treatment Offered by Gastroenterologists at Mercy in Baltimore

Digestive Health and Liver Disease

Remicade, also known as infliximab, is a treatment option for inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Remicade infusion has shown to have substantial success for patients with inflammatory bowel disease. Patients from Baltimore and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region turn to Mercy gastroenterologists for their expertise in understanding the benefits of Remicade infusion for inflammatory bowel disease treatment.

Mercy offers Remicade infusion at multiple locations throughout the Baltimore area.

How does Remicade Infusion treatment work?

Remicade, used to treat various autoimmune disorders, blocks a substance in the body called tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Remicade is a protein that recognizes, attaches to, and blocks the actions of the TNF to reduce inflammation in the body. Although Remicade will not cure inflammatory bowel disease, it may help patients feel better and relieve symptoms. The treatment goal is steroid sparing and mucosal healing.
