In this episode, The Center for Biosimilars delves into the FDA approval of the first denosumab biosimilars, Wyost and Jubbonti (denosumab-bbdz), which share the nonproprietary name of denosumab-bbdz. These products were approved in March 2024 and although they are the same drug, the different brand names correspond with different indications: Wyost is used for musculoskeletal issues related to bone metastases and Jubbonti is used for osteoporosis and patients with a high risk of fracture.

We have 2 esteemed guests to talk to us about how the osteoporosis treatment landscape is developing and how these new products will help expand access to denosumab treatment: Colin C. Edgerton, MD, a rheumatologist at Articularis Healthcare Group and a member of the American College of Rheumatology ultrasound task force, and Jeffrey Curtis, MD, MS, MPH, a professor, rheumatologist, and epidemiologist at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and a former member of the FDA Arthritis Advisory Committee.
