The importance of biologics in today’s drug development market is evident from the statistics. As the number of biologics going off patent increases, biosimilar medicines promise to be an attractive offering to healthcare organisations, physicians and patients by providing greater choice and a more cost effective alternative.
However biosimilars are relatively new to certain markets, and the number of approved drugs in the US is still low. As the regulatory environment evolves and matures, the uptake of development in this area is increasing.
