INFLECTRA®Contraindications (infliximab-dyyb)

4 CONTRAINDICATIONS

INFLECTRA at doses >5 mg/kg should not be administered to patients with moderate to severe heart failure. In a randomized study evaluating infliximab in patients with moderate to severe heart failure (New York Heart Association [NYHA] Functional Class III/IV), infliximab treatment at 10 mg/kg was associated with an increased incidence of death and hospitalization due to worsening heart failure [see Warnings and Precautions (5.5), Adverse Reactions (6.1)].

INFLECTRA should not be readministered to patients who have experienced a severe hypersensitivity reaction to infliximab products. Additionally, INFLECTRA should not be administered to patients with known hypersensitivity to inactive components of the product or to any murine proteins.
