Alliance for Safe Biologic Medicines Chairman Urges FDA to Ensure that Patient Safety is the Cornerstone of Biosimilar Pathway
Date:5/11/2012

WASHINGTON, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Richard Dolinar, chairman of the Alliance for Safe Biologic Medicines (Alliance) outlined five areas of concern that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should resolve before they allow biosimilar medications on the U.S. drug market in prepared testimony for the FDA's May 11th public hearing.  The event addressed the FDA's recent draft guidelines for the development of biosimilar products.

"We applaud the FDA's efforts to bring biosimilars to the U.S. market, but would urge a deliberate approach that is becoming of FDA's critical role of ensuring the safety and efficacy of the nation's drug supply," Dr. Dolinar said.  "The members of the Alliance support the goal of the health care law to bring broader access to biologic medicines to patients across the country and we want to ensure that biosimilar medicines are as safe as the innovator drugs they seek to replicate."

During his testimony, Dr. Dolinar, a practicing endocrinologist, outlined (1) the need for robust clinical testing; (2) the establishment of steps to monitor the global supply chain and manufacturing process; (3) the creation of track, trace and naming provisions; (4) the development of clear packaging, labeling and prescribing information; and (5) very close and deliberate scrutiny of a biosimilar before it is deemed interchangeable.

"Biologics are complex, large molecule drugs that are grown inside living cells using unique and proprietary processes," Dr. Dolinar said during his testimony.  "For this reason, no two biologics made from different cell lines or using different processes can be identical based on today's science.  Biologics are also highly sensitive to the manufacturing process. In fact, altering a single manufacturing parameter can change a compound's identity and/or the precise effect it has on the human body."
