Inflectra®, in combination with methotrexate, is indicated for the reduction of signs and symptoms as well as the improvement in physical function in:

• Adult patients with active disease when the response to disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), including methotrexate, has been inadequate2.
• Adult patients with severe, active and progressive disease not previously treated with methotrexate or other DMARDs2.
