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.
How is Remicade treatment administered?
Remicade is an IV-infused medication given over two hours by a nurse dedicated to caring for Remicade infusion patients.
