PharmSource - Catching the Next Wave: How Much Have CMOs Benefited from Biosimilars - 2018 Edition
Biosimilars are drugs that are highly similar but not identical to branded innovator biologics: large molecule, immunogenic drugs produced from living cells. Innovator biologics are the first to be approved, and when their patent protection expires, biosimilars may be approved, in a similar way to small molecule branded drugs and their generics.
There are no clinically meaningful differences in quality, safety and efficacy between biosimilars and innovator biologics. The exact definition of a biosimilar varies by regulator.
Biosimilars bring competition to expensive innovator biologics and represent a cost-saving option for payers.
More than 50 biosimilars are approved in the EU, while the FDA lags behind with 17 approvals but is catching up fast. As more innovator biologics come off-patent in the near future, this will bring a huge opportunity for biosimilar companies and for biosimilar manufacturers.
