Date:6/15/2009

WASHINGTON, June 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressional Quarterly presents a 360-degree look at the "state of play" on the approval of follow-on versions of biotech drugs. This CQ Forum will include a panel discussion with industry leaders, public interest groups, and leading researchers regarding the complex structures of biologics products vs. traditional pharmaceuticals.

Keynote speakers include: Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT).
