In brief: Generally Yes

Infliximab (remicade) is generally effective at treating crohn's, keeping people off steroids, and preventing flares.
Once started, it is important to continue regular dosing, not beyond 8-9 week intervals. Missing doses increases the risk of loss of response and of infusion reactions.
