From this study (2 weeks ago):
After third infusion of Remicade I developed pneumonia requiring hospitalization. An 8 day stay with anti-biotic treatments. I developed oral candida albicans where lozenges (200) failed to cure. Just switched to liquid solution w/I last 2 days. Doctors report I have developed pulmonary fibrosis. We are just now addressing that symptom/result. I had one more infusion 6 weeks after entering the hospital, and had negative symptoms. Doctor advises to stop all Remicade treatments. O2 intake is now at 90%, where as last year it would normally be 95%+ w/o exertion.
From this study (4 months ago):
repeated pneumonia- three times after stopping the use of nucynta

Recovered from pneumonia I thought but a week to two week later went on a trip and had severe diarrhea, bloating, throwing up, now constipated and then spotted (having period with cramps but had an ablation so not bleeding. I look 6 months pregnant. Now constipated severely bloated, fullness, severely fatigued, yuk! I'm back home and after 7 days of this, I still feel no better.
