Our podcast, “Not So Different,” provides insights from and discussions with stakeholders from across the biosimilars landscape.
With pharmaceutical spending at record levels, employers are looking for solutions and are hopeful that biosimilars can play a role in controlling costs. On this episode, we speak with representatives of EmployersRX, a new coalition made up of 3 employer groups that are advocating for measures that would provide relief for the largest purchasers of healthcare. 
In the past decade of experience with the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act, a number of questions about the biosimilar pathway have been resolved through litigation. This week on the podcast, we're speaking with attorneys Robert Cerwinski, JD, and Alexandra Valenti, JD, both of whom are partners at Goodwin, about experience with litigation, the road ahead for biosimilars, and Goodwin's recently published guide to biosimilar litigation. 
When it comes to US biosimilars, 2019 was a busy year for regulatory activity. This week on the podcast, we're rounding up the key developments of the year. 
During the American College of Rheumatology’s recent 2019 annual meeting, we caught up with Paul Emery, MD, FRCP, MA, FMedSci. Emery is the Versus Arthritis Professor of Rheumatology, University of Leeds, and the Director of the Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Centre at Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust in the United Kingdom. In this episode of the podcast, we’re sharing highlights of our interview with Emery about biosimilars.
With us on the podcast to talk about recent and upcoming biosimilar launches is Sean McGowan, senior director of biosimilars at AmerisourceBergen. McGowen spoke with us about what the US biosimilars market needs now in order to thrive and tells us which developments he’ll be watching closely in 2020.
Just last month, the European Commission authorized a subcutaneously administered formulation of biosimilar infliximab CT-P13 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. When the drug launches in the European Union, it will be first infliximab to be available in a subcutaneous formulation. This week on the podcast, we’re speaking about this new product with Mike An, head of the sales and operations division at Celltrion Healthcare. 
This week on the podcast, we’re rounding up the top business stories of November 2019.
 
As fee-for-service models give way to value-based healthcare delivery models, US providers and patients alike can hopefully look forward to lower healthcare costs, increased quality of care, and improved outcomes. But what role will biosimilars have to play in value-based care? This week on the podcast, we’re speaking with Jeffrey Scott, MD, chief medical officer of Integra Connect, about this issue.
In October of this year, the nonprofit organization HealthyWomen, a group that seeks to educate women to make informed choices about their health, hosted its first Biosimilars and Women’s Health Science and Policy Forum. The daylong forum offered expert perspectives on the state of biosimilars in the United States, legislative and regulatory updates, and a look at challenges and opportunities for biosimilars to improve women’s access to treatment. This week on the podcast, we’re speaking with one of the presenters from that meeting, Lisa Kennedy Sheldon, PhD, APRN, AOCNP, FAAN.
In September, AARP issued its latest Rx Price Watch report, which tracks price trends for prescription drugs that are widely used by older Americans. That report highlighted the problem of skyrocketing drug costs; it found that the retail prices for widely used drugs increased well above the rate of inflation, and that’s a troubling trend for Medicare beneficiaries. This week on the podcast, we’re speaking with one of the authors of that report, Leigh Purvis, MPA.
