Number 5: British Columbia's Biosimilars Initiative successfully saved about $732 million over 5 years by switching over 40,000 patients from reference biologics to biosimilars, while maintaining equivalent health outcomes and reinvesting the savings into the province's public payer program (BC PharmaCare) to enhance drug coverage and health care services.

Number 4: Sarfaraz K. Niazi, PhD, makes suggestions for what arguments will help convince the FDA to waive clinical efficacy testing requirements for biosimilar approvals.

Number 2: In the second and final part of this series installment by The Center for Biosimilars®, the role of payers, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), and the financial incentives that influence prescription choices are addressed as obstacles towards affordable biosimilar treatments, specifically among underserved communities.
