Infliximab (INN; trade name Remicade) is a monoclonal antibody against tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFÎ±) used to treat autoimmune diseases. Remicade is marketed by Janssen Biotech, Inc. (formerly Centocor Biotech, Inc.) in the USA, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma in Japan, Xian Janssen in China, and Schering-Plough (now part of Merck & Co) elsewhere. Infliximab was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of psoriasis, Crohn's disease, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ulcerative colitis. Infliximab won its initial approval by the FDA for the treatment of Crohn's disease in August 1998. Infliximab works by binding to tumour necrosis factor alpha. TNFÎ± is a chemical messenger (cytokine) and a key part of the autoimmune reaction. Originally, the action of infliximab (in rheumatoid arthritis) was assumed to work by blocking the action of TNFÎ± by preventing it from binding to its receptor in the cell. This still seems to be true. However, another TNFÎ±-neutralizing medication, etanercept (Enbrel), is worse than a placebo in Crohn's disease, so TNFÎ±-neutralisation is not responsible for its powerful action in the latter disease. Infliximab causes programmed cell death of TNFÎ±-expressing activated T lymphocytes, an important cell type mediating inflammation, but etanercept does not have this activity; now, resolution of activated T cells by infliximab is generally assumed to explain its efficacy in Crohn's disease. Infliximab is an artificial antibody. It was originally developed in mice as a mouse antibody. Because humans have immune reactions to mouse proteins, the mouse common domains were replaced with similar human antibody domains. Because the antibodies were produced from one cell grown into a clone of identical cells, it is called a monoclonal antibody. Because it is a combination of mouse and human antibody, it is called a chimeric monoclonal antibody. Infliximab was developed by Junming Le and Jan Vilcek at New York University School of Medicine and developed by Centocor, (now Jannsen Biotech, Inc.) Infliximab can cost $19,000 to $22,000 a year per patient wholesale, according to Centocor. It is typically covered under major medical insurance (rather than prescription drug insurance). Other monoclonal antibodies targeting TNFÎ± are golimumab (Simponi), adalimumab (Humira), and certolizumab pegol (Cimzia). Etanercept also binds and inhibits the action of TNFÎ±, but is not a monoclonal antibody (it is instead a fusion of TNF-receptor and an antibody constant region). Infliximab is administered by intravenous infusion, typically at six- to eight-week intervals, at a clinic or hospital. It cannot be administered orally, because the digestive system would destroy the drug.
