Date:2/26/2013

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- XBiotech, a privately held biotechnology company, announced today that it is entering the biosimilar business. The Company is launching its biosimilar business with development of two of the world's leading therapeutic antibodies, one an oncology and the other an anti-inflammatory product. Entering into the biosimilar space will complete what XBiotech considers is its strategic portfolio of therapeutic antibodies. The Company believes that its manufacturing technology will lower production costs for biological products by an order of magnitude compared to other developers of generic biologics. Moreover, the Company claims that the flexibility and short lead-times needed to build production capacity is ideally suited for addressing the uncertain market conditions for biosimilars. The Company aims to enter into clinical trials with its first biosimilar product within the next year and launch into the market place by 2017.

"This is a logical next step to round out our antibody assets and fully exploit XBiotech's antibody commercialization platform."

There are a number of different biosimilar antibodies expected to hit the market beginning in 2014, including generic versions of Avastin®, Herceptin®, Remicade™, Rituxan®, and others.  These therapeutics currently represent the majority of revenues from global sales of antibodies, of more than $40 billion.  The potential to capture significant share of this market is luring a number of players, including heavy-weight producers o
