Clinical trial evidence in IBD

INFLECTRA®/CT-P13 (infliximab): clinical trial evidence in IBD

Use of CT-P13 (infliximab) in CD and UC is supported by a rapidly growing body of clinical evidence and experience5-18

All published studies, reports and study abstracts evaluating CT-P13 (infliximab) in IBD identified through April 2017.‡§

**Some real-world cases have not reported comparable results when switching from originator to biosimilars.

Study 3.4 overview

NOR-SWITCH overview

*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.20,21 Increasing real-world experience confirms the CT-P13 clinical efficacy and safety profile.22

†CT-P13 is marketed under different brand names including INFLECTRA® and REMSIMA™.

‡Data for Study 3.4 were acquired from an abstract presented at UEGW in October 2017.

§Not all studies evaluated the efficacy and/or safety of CT-P13. The majority of studies were either retrospective or prospective/observational, and in most cases, CT-P13 results were compared against baseline parameters or prior evidence of Remicade™.
