Biosimilars: A New Generation of Biologics by Jean-Louis Prugnaud,Jean-Hugues Trouvin

By Jean-Louis Prugnaud,Jean-Hugues Trouvin

Biologics have revolutionised the remedy of many serious stipulations, offering unprecedented scientific effects but in addition generating quite excessive costs. As patents expire, copies and cost festival are anticipated in the course of the global. although, as a result intrinsic heterogeneity and molecular complexity of biologic medicinal items, their copies can't easily be licensed below the “generic rule” legitimate for small chemical entities.


In reaction, a devoted rules was once issued within the ecu Union. it truly is in keeping with the idea that of “biological medicinal items just like a organic reference product”, or “biosimilars”. This booklet analyses the context of biotechnological construction and addresses the ecu criminal framework for biosimilar marketplace approval. It highlights post-market authorisation concerns, resembling danger administration Plans and substitution of goods, and descriptions another concerns, similar to price administration and foreign nomenclature.


This booklet is basically meant for hospital-based physicians and pharmacists. it is going to even be a useful source for all actors from all international locations who are looking to greater comprehend the emergence of those new medicinal items in the ecu context.
