For psoriasis,: Mutations in any of ~ 14 known genes confer susceptibility, with symptoms triggered by environmental factors, like streptococcal infections & stress.

Nod to others:: Humira is a tnfa antibody, and is similar to envbrel. Remicade (infliximab) is an antibody to the tnfa receptor, so it works differently. But i would have tried you on leflunomide, and oral drug, before starting biologics. ...Read more

A big mistake for anyone who requires Remicade (infliximab) or other infusables. Anyone in this situation must stay with traditional medicare and avoid hmos. ...Read more

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.
