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. Are generic biologics possible? Will the availability of these products save money for consumers? What is the right length of intellectual property protection?

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

Frank Sesno, professor of media and public affairs at The George Washington University and host of PBS's "Planet Forward" will moderate the panel discussion.
