What medications can be administered at the Infusion Center?
Any medication that requires it to be administered intravenously. Remicade is the most common of these medications.
What is Remicade?
Remicade (Infliximab) is a medicine that is used to treat adults with moderately to severely active Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, and Psoriatic Arthropathy. In Crohn’s disease, Remicade is for people who have not responded well enough to other medicines.
The Immune system protects the body by responding to “invaders” like bacteria, viruses and other foreign matter that enter your body by producing antibodies and putting them into action to cause your immune system to attack healthy tissues in your body and cause inflammation. If this condition is left untreated, it can cause permanent damage to the bones, cartilage and tissue. Remicade (inflixmab) works to block the production of TNF, thus blocking the autoimmune process produced by the body.
