Position statements: ECCO

The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO) is a European medical association focused on IBD1

ECCO released an updated Position Statement on the Use of Biosimilars in 2017 that supports the use of INFLECTRA® (CT-P13*/infliximab) in appropriate patients with IBD2

​​​​​​​“Since biosimilars were introduced in the EU market in early 2015, more data from IBD patients have supported the biosimilarity of biosimilar infliximab CT-P13 and the reference product, with no significant differences in terms of efficacy or safety, in either naïve or switched patients in cohort studies”2
Example Text

The updated ECCO position statement also encourages the important role of healthcare professionals in patient counselling on biosimilars2

“Healthcare professionals have the responsibility to ensure that all information is given to the patient to promote shared decision-making, confirming informed consent to treatment and evidence-based patient choice”2
Example Text
CT-P13 is marketed under different brand names including INFLECTRA® and REMSIMA™.IBD, Inflammatory bowel disease.

Please refer to the INFLECTRA® Summary of Product Characteristics for full prescribing information
