Anyone knows when does the patent protection period expires on remicade?
Ive been told that usually it lasts for 10 years, so i supose that when these period expires, other labs my produce this drug, therefore the price is going to come down.

Hopefully there will be better drugs on the market instead. Humira and Cimza are trying, not sure how successful they've been. The mouse protein in the Remicade makes this an undesirable long term drug. I hope all companies are trying to do better, not just copy.
