Date:7/14/2009

Event Focused on Ensuring Patient Safety is Top Priority of Follow-on Biologic Legislation Being Debated on Capitol Hill

WASHINGTON, July 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 15th, on Capitol Hill, the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest will host a briefing followed by a question-and-answer session for media and Congressional Staff entitled: "A Follow-on Biologics Legislation Update; Congressional Leaders and Medical Experts Discuss Patient Safety." The event will be co-hosted by two high-ranking members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI). The Representatives are lead sponsors of bipartisan legislation to modernize the regulatory pathway for Food and Drug Association approval of follow-on biologics.

Representative Eshoo's legislation: H.R. 1548, the Pathway for Biosimilars Act ensures that new standards for testing will make certain that follow-on biologic drugs are both safe and effective. The bill currently has 108 cosponsors and has the broadest bipartisan support of any legislation designed to regulate follow-on biologics.

"CMPI applauds Representatives Eshoo's and Rogers' commitment to ensuring patient safety is the top-priority for follow-on biologics legislation," said Robert Goldberg of CMPI. "The next few weeks are going to be a pivotal time in Congress as health care takes top billing in the House and the Senate. It is critical that advocates for safe and effective follow-on biologics do all they can to support Representative Eshoo's legislation. Representatives Eshoo's and Rogers' dedication to ensuring FDA takes the appropriate steps to ensure the safety of patients could mean the difference between health and illness for millions of Americans."

Also speaking at the event will be former Congressman Mike Ferguson; Dr. Geno Merli, Senior
