In brief: Many patients!
Results are very good, particulary when used alone and better with methotrexate.
The dirrence with Remicade (infliximab) is that it blocks the tnf-a receptor, rather than binding tnf-a itself, but it accomplishes the same thing. It's infusion intervals are longer, because the turnover of recptors is slower than the production of tnf-a itself. A good choice for those who do not want to inject themselves sc.
