Hi and welcome.

I'm starting remicade tomorrow. Looking forward to Entyvio being approved in Canada.

Is this like Remicade? This is the new one they just did the trials on, correct?

I thought so, but I just asked my doc, he said it wasn't a biologic.I thought it was.Maybe he was talking about a different med.

It is a biologic but it acts in a different way than the TNF inhibiters like Humira and Remicade.
