Here are the top 5 biosimilar articles for the week of June 17, 2024.

Number 5: A real-world study of children and young adults with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) switched from the infliximab reference product to a biosimilar concluded effectiveness was maintained over 12 months based on stable remission rates and biochemical markers.

Number 4: Switching patients with non-infectious uveitis from originator adalimumab to biosimilar adalimumab-atto was safe and effective, but some patients experienced the nocebo effect, where negative adverse events are caused by patients’ poor perception of the drug rather than the medication itself.

Number 3: A poster from the European Hematology Association’s (EHA) 2024 annual meeting in Madrid, Spain, showed similar rates of transfusion avoidance between patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria who were administered reference eculizumab (Soliris) and those administered an eculizumab biosimilar (SB12).

Number 2: British Columbia's 2019 Biosimilars Initiative, which transitioned over 40,000 patients from costly branded biologics to biosimilars, saved around $732 million in 5 years, maintained comparable health outcomes, and reinvested the savings to improve the province's public payer program.

Number 1: Sarfaraz K. Niazi, PhD, makes suggestions for what arguments will help convince the FDA to waive clinical efficacy testing requirements for biosimilar approvals.
