  • The launch followed market releases of the product in Germany and the UK in Feb and Mar’2020 respectively. Before the launch in the Netherlands, the company had an online symposium, attended by 200 medical professionals on Apr 21, 2020
  • Celltrion collaborated with CZ to reimburse the entire treatment fee for Remsima SC and allows patients to administer it directly at home. Additionally, CZ’s SC formulation is more expensive than IV formulation, but ‘Remsima SC’ is expected to be a good alternative to the infliximab formulation
