What is Inflectra?
Inflectra contains the prescription medicine infliximab that is classed as a tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) inhibitor. TNF-alpha causes inflammation in the body. Inflectra is used for the treatment of:
- Crohn’s disease – for use in adults and children, 6 years of age or older with moderate to severe symptoms, who have not responded to other medication. It is used to reduce as well as initiate and reverse the signs and symptoms of Crohn’s disease.
- Ulcerative colitis – for use in adults with moderate to severe active ulcerative colitis who have not responded to other medication. It is used to reduce the signs and symptoms, initiate and maintain reversal of the symptoms as well as mucosal healing.
- Rheumatoid arthritis – in moderate to severe active cases, it is used with methotrexate to reduce the signs and symptoms, prevent further structural damage, and improve the ability of patients to function physically.
- Ankylosing spondylitis – to reduce the signs and symptoms.
- Psoriatic arthritis – to reduce the signs and symptoms, block further structural damage, and improve the ability of patients to function physically.
- Plaque psoriasis – for use in adults with chronic severe plaque psoriasis.
Inflectra active ingredients
TNF-alpha is normally responsible for enhancing the effects of cytokines, leukocytes, neutrophils, and eosinophils, all of which are involved in the body’s immune response. Infliximab works by attaching itself to TNF-alpha specifically, preventing the TNF-alpha from attaching to its receptors in the body and preventing it from carrying out its normal function. How exactly the effect of infliximab on TNF-alpha is related to how infliximab works in the body is not fully understood.
