Bringing important medicines to patients in need
Biosimilars were introduced with the goal of offering patients more treatment options and reducing healthcare costs related to biologics. Through the adoption of biosimilars, it is estimated that the health care system could save $104 billion from 2020 to 2024.
What is a biosimilar?
Before getting into biosimilars, it helps to know about biologics.
Doctors use biologic medicines to treat a range of serious conditions. A lot of medicines that you pick up at your local drug store are made of fairly simple molecules, whereas biologic medicines have extremely complex molecules. They are made from living organisms, like bacteria or yeast.
What are biosimilar medicines?
Biosimilars are a type of biologic medicine. Biosimilars are approved by the FDA as being highly similar to an already approved biologic medicine. Thus the name, biosimilar.
A biosimilar must show that it is has no clinically meaningful differences in safety, purity and potency compared with the reference biologic.
A biosimilar is not a generic.
Some people think a biosimilar is like a generic medicine. As with generics, biosimilars are designed to be similar to another medicine.
