Study design2

NOR-SWITCH was a national, randomised, double-blind, non-inferiority, parallel-group study that compared the effect of switching from Remicade™‡(infliximab) to INFLECTRA®/CT-P13§ (infliximab) in 482 patients, 248 of whom were diagnosed with IBD#2

Created from Jørgensen KK, et al. 2017.


*CT-P13 was designed with comparable efficacy, safety and quality to reference infliximab, to increase the treatment options for your Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis patients.5,6 Increasing real-world experience confirms the CT-P13 clinical efficacy and safety profile.7

†Commissioned by Norwegian regional health trusts and fully funded by Norwegian government.
