Amgen and Genentech Brace Themselves for Heavy Pressure From Biogenerics Manufacturers

U.S. Biogeneric Agents to Reach $2 Billion in Sales by 2016, According to a

New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, Inc., one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that Amgen, the leading manufacturer of biologic agents with biologic sales of more than $14 billion in 2006, and Genentech, the second leading biologics manufacturer with biologic sales of more than $9 billion in 2006, are bracing themselves for heavy pressure from biogeneric manufacturers. According to the new special report entitled Biogenerics 2007- 2016: Physician and Payer Acceptance Fuels Brand Erosion, Amgen products such as Enbrel, Epogen and Neupogen will be eroded by biogeneric sales in both the United States and Europe. In fact, on August 31, 2007, European regulators approved Sandoz's biogeneric epoetin alfa for patients with renal anemia and those receiving chemotherapy. Genentech products such as Rituxan/MabThera and Herceptin represent windfall opportunities for biogeneric hopefuls.

The report also reveals that, with the launch of biogeneric TNF-alpha inhibitors in 2012, the U.S. biogeneric market will expand substantially through 2016 and reach a total of more than $2 billion in annual sales.

"This growth in the U.S. biogeneric market will be driven by biogeneric TNF-alpha inhibitors for rheumatoid arthritis, which we project will generate $700 million in sales by 2016, and will be supported by biogeneric versions of interferon-betas for multiple sclerosis, Herceptin for breast cancer, and ESPs for chemotherapy-induced anemia, each of which will post more than $250 million in 2016 U.S. sales," said Andrew Merseth, analyst at Decision Resources.
