Crohn's Disease safety guidance

​​​​​​​

In Adults

Inflectra is indicated for:

  • Treatment of moderately to severely active Crohn's disease, in adult patients who have not responded despite a full and adequate course of therapy with a corticosteroid and/or an immunosuppressant; or who are intolerant to or have medical contraindications for such therapies.1

  • Treatment of fistulising, active Crohn's disease, in adult patients who have not responded despite a full and adequate course of therapy with conventional treatment (including antibiotics, drainage and immunosuppressive therapy).1

In Paediatrics

Inflectra is indicated for treatment of severely active Crohn's disease in children and adolescents aged 6 to 17 years, who have not responded to conventional therapy including a corticosteroid, an immunomodulator and primary nutrition therapy; or who are intolerant to or have contraindications for such therapies. Infliximab has been studied only in combination with conventional immunosuppressive therapy.1

Post-marketing safety

Post-marketing data of 4,393 patients has illustrated that the safety profile appears consistent with clinical studies for CT-P13 and reference infliximab, supporting the favourable risk/benefit balance for CT-P13 treatment.2
