The European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) is a European medical association focused on the gastrointestinal health of children1

The ESPGHAN IBD Porto group is a group of experts who generate collaborative international research on the diagnosis and management of IBD in children2

The ESPGHAN IBD Porto group released an updated position statement in 2019 that supports the use of INFLECTRA® (CT-P13*/infliximab) in appropriate paediatric patients with IBD3

“There are sufficient data (by extrapolation from different indications, adult data and limited paediatric data) to state that in children with IBD who are indicated for infliximab treatment, CT-P13 is an efficacious alternative to the originator infliximab for induction, and maintenance, of remission”3“A switch from the originator infliximab to CT-P13 may be considered in children with IBD in clinical remission, following at least 3 induction infusions”3
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
