Here are the top 5 biosimilar articles for the week of February 20, 2023.

Hi, I’m Justina Petrullo 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 February 20th, 2023.

Number 5: Alex Jung and Kim Dwyer, both members of the Midwest Business Group on Health (MBGH) board of directors, discussed why employers should be ready for the explosion of biosimilars entering the market, and how they can prepare.

Number 4: Fresenius Kabi announced the US launch of its pegfilgrastim biosimilar Stimufend (pegfilgrastim-fpgk), making it the fifth biosimilar referencing Neulasta to enter the market.

Number 3: In theory, by offering a lower-cost treatment option, biosimilars would help drive access for countless patients who simply could not afford the brand-name biologic. However, biosimilars have also encountered the harsh realities of the US health care system and its market forces.

Number 2: At the annual meeting of the Association for Accessible Medicines (Access 2023), Shark Tank’s Mark Cuban explained his dedication to and the inner workings of his online pharmacy that provides generic drugs to patients for significantly lower prices than traditional pharmacies.

Number 1: Biocon Biologics and its partner Viatris received a complete response letter (CRL) for their biosimilar referencing Avastin (bevacizumab), the second CRL for the companies in 2023. The news comes as Biocon publishes increased revenues for biosimilars and generics.
