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
