Cimizia... alternate to Remicade


A new drug that appears to be about a year away from release appears to be simular to Remicade, but perhaps more effective.

I need to do some more looking around to see what it is all about, but I thought I would share it with you all first.


thanks Mike.. Im on Remicade, and am told Im in remission, but the past month has been scary with all symptoms (except bleeding, thank god) slowly coming back.
its been a big fear of mine that the Remicade is only a temporary solution, so I hope new things like this Cimizia and Humira can be approved soon.
