Infliximab Drug Class

Infliximab (Remicade®) is approved to treat a wide variety of inflammatory conditions, such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, ankylosing spondylitis, and rheumatoid arthritis. This drug is classified as a tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor. This means that it helps reduce the levels of TNF in the body, which are often high in people with these medical conditions.
 
Because this drug class is not safe for everyone, before beginning treatment with infliximab, tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have (including allergies) and any other medications you are taking (including nonprescription products and supplements). This will help your healthcare provider in devising a treatment plan that is right for you.
