If you click on the "new meds" link in my signature you'll find a lot of good threads where we've discussed Infliximab / Remicade.
Good luck with your decision! Before you commit to the trial, I would ask the people running it whether you'll be able to keep taking the medication once the trial is over. A delay of more than four months between infusions increases the risk of you having a nasty reaction the next time you receive Infliximab, and you may be unable to take the drug again.
In other words, if you are only going to be getting the drug for the duration of the trial, I would be reluctant to participate. Infliximab has been the magic bullet for many, many patients. You don't want to lose the chance to have a sustained remission, simply because nobody will give you the drug once the trial is over.
