Number 4: Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration has approved Celltrion’s rituximab biosimilar.

Number 3: The FDA’s Arthritis Advisory Committee recommended approval of only 1 of 2 proposed doses of baricitinib, a drug that many believed could compete for market share with Humira.

Number 2: A patient advocacy group is asking the Federal Trade Commission to investigate whether AbbVie’s recent settlements concerning patents on Humira violate the law.

Number 1: The Supreme Court of the United States ruled this week that the inter partes review process, which many biosimilar developers use to challenge patents on biologics, is constitutional.
