Here are the top 5 biosimilar articles for the week of January 22, 2024.

Number 5: A study examining biosimilar uptake patterns within different health insurance plans found that low-flexibility plans, such as health maintenance organizations and exclusive provider organizations, were more likely to initiate biosimilar therapies than more flexible plans.

Number 4: Two rituximab biosimilars (Rixathon and Truxima) and the reference drug (Rituxan) exhibited similar safety and efficacy outcomes in patients with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), an autoimmune disease followed by a low platelet count, according to a recent analysis.

Number 3: The FDA has approved Coherus Biosciences’ on-body injector version of Udenyca (pegfilgrastim-cbqv), making it the first biosimilar to reference Neulasta Onpro, the pegfilgrastim product that holds the majority of the pegfilgrastim market share.

Number 2: Authors of a review of available postapproval pharmacovigilance data assessing 8 Sandoz biosimilars concluded that these biosimilars “can be used as safely as their respective reference biologics.”

Number 1: In its most recent edition of its Global Use of Medicines Report, the IQVIA Institute for Human Data Science predicted that losses for originator products will rise from $111 billion to $192 billion by the end of 2028, thanks to market introductions of new biosimilar and generic medicines.
