Here are the top 5 biosimilar articles for the week of April 24, 2023.

Hi, I’m Skylar Jeremias for The Center for Biosimilars®, your resource for clinical, regulatory, business, and policy news in the rapidly changing world of biosimilars.

Here are the top 5 biosimilar articles for the week of April 24, 2023.

Number 5: A study assessing factors that may determine a commercial health plan’s likelihood of covering a biosimilar found that biosimilars that are cancer therapies, used to treat children, indicated for highly prevalent conditions, or only competing against the originator were more likely to have coverage restrictions.

Number 4: Celltrion Healthcare shared data from a phase 3 clinical trial confirming that its omalizumab biosimilar had comparable safety and efficacy to the reference product (Xolair).

Number 3: A retrospective study in Scotland found that multiple successive changes from originator infliximab to biosimilars seem to be safe and effective in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irrespective of the number of switches.

Number 2: In a complete response letter (CRL) for Alvotech, the FDA cited “deficiencies” in the company’s manufacturing facility during a reinspection, further delaying the approval for the ninth adalimumab biosimilar until potentially June 2023.

Number 1: The misconceptions about disposable bioreactors' lifecycle are gone; the era of hard-piped, giant, stainless-steel tanks for biosimilar development is history now, according to Sarfaraz K. Niazi, PhD, in his latest column.
