Physician Familiarity With Biosimilars Has Increased Significantly Over The Past Year
Date:8/28/2013

EXTON, Pa., Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioTrends Research Group, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for specialized biopharmaceutical issues, finds a significant increase in the percentage of surveyed specialists who are extremely familiar with biosimilars in 2013 compared with 2012, although this group remains a minority of all physicians.

The Biosimilars Advisory Service report entitled Acceptance of Biosimilars Across Physician Specialties provides analysis of survey results from 560 physicians across six specialties in the United States and Europe. The report finds that surveyed endocrinologists are least familiar with biosimilars, with only a minority saying they are very or extremely familiar with biosimilars compared with the majority of surveyed hematologist-oncologists across all countries. On average, hematologist-oncologists and medical oncologists report significantly higher levels of familiarity compared with nephrologists and endocrinologists. From a country perspective, surveyed physicians in Germany are significantly more familiar with biosimilars than those in France, although there has been a significant increase in familiarity among French physicians this year compared with data collected in 2012.

The majority of all surveyed physicians perceive reference brands and biosimilars to be very similar to one another. Surveyed endocrinologists view biosimilars as being least similar to the reference brand; less than one half say biosimilars are very similar to the reference brand compared with two thirds of hematologist-oncologists who feel the same. The report also quantifies the correlation between physicians' level of familiarity with biosimilars and their perception of similarity between biosi
