Reactions to remicad: Need to be evaluated: are they true allergic reactions or adverse drug reactions? and what type of reactions were they? Your doctor will have to decide on that. As for the proteins involved, human proteins can still cause reactions, if it is the case. Kindly confer with your doctor, this a complex decision, infliximab isn't a simple drug, and has to prescribed and monitored closely, good luck
