Biosimilars are revolutionizing the biopharmaceutical industry. These are biologic medications that are developed by a different company than the inventors, yet offer the same safe, potent and pure experience. Such game-changing medicines are transforming healthcare and giving consumers access to more cost-effective treatment options.
Patients who need biologics can now benefit from biosimilars, thanks to the FDA’s designation of interchangeable biologics. These interchangeable copies meet the same exacting standards as their reference products and even undergo an additional switching study in which patients are moved back-and-forth several times to prove safety and effectiveness. Depending on each state’s laws, providers and patients may be required to get notified when an interchangeble biosimilar is substituted.
