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 October 11, 2021.

Number 5: Health Canada has approved a bevacizumab biosimilar (Bambevi) from Apobiologix, a division of Apotex, the company said in a statement.

Number 4: Ivo Abraham, PhD, a professor with University of Arizona Health Sciences in the Department of Pharmacy Practice, outlined the current trajectory and savings potential for granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) biosimilars and Neulasta Onpro (pegfilgrastim).

Number 3: A US District Court in Illinois has ruled that although trade secret theft may have occurred over an adalimumab biosimilar candidate, it happened far from the state. With only a very "attenuated" connection, there are no grounds to bring action against Alvotech, the judge stated.

Number 2: Positive findings for Coherus BioSciences' ranibizumab candidate (CHS-201) were presented at the Scientific Meeting of the Retina Society, and the company said equivalence end points were met for an on-body injector version of Udenyca (pegfilgrastim).

Number 1: The court battle between AbbVie and Alvotech could be a defining victory in the struggle to bring biosimilar versions of adalimumab to market, but a yearlong court process must play out first.
