Pfizer study shows safety of switching to Inflectra therapy

1st November 2017

Pfizer has announced the findings of a new clinical trial that further demonstrates the effectiveness of Inflectra, its biosimilar Crohn's disease therapy.

The company has reported 54-week results from a study that has shown that patients who switch to Inflectra from Remicade – the branded therapy on which Inflectra is based – are able to do so without any drop-off in performance.

Switching patients with Crohn's disease to Inflectra from Remicade led to comparable efficacy, safety and tolerability to sustained treatment with Remicade over a 54-week period, while the biosimilar was also shown to be well-tolerated, with a similar safety profile to Remicade.

These findings add to a well-established body of evidence, including real-world studies and the NOR-SWITCH trial, showing that switching stable patients to Inflectra can be a beneficial option.

Dr Sam Azoulay, senior vice-president and chief medical officer at Pfizer Essential Health, said: "Today's announcement further highlights Pfizer's commitment to biosimilars and provides additional evidence supporting use of Inflectra in Crohn's disease."
