About Biosimilars

Biosimilars are subsequent versions of recombinant therapeutic innovator products manufactured and sold by a different corporate sponsor following expiry of patent exclusivity for the innovator product.  With many innovator biopharmaceutical products going off patent in the next 5-10 years, there is an industry-wide effort to develop corresponding biosimilars. The U.S. FDA was given the authority to approve biosimilars within the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, following similar approvals in the European Union.
