Number 4: Samsung Bioepis announced that the FDA has accepted for review a Biologics License Application for SB8, a proposed bevacizumab biosimilar referencing Avastin.

Number 3: While much attention over the past few weeks has been on the US biosimilars market, Canada has also been making strides in its own biosimilars experience.

Number 2: The US market saw the launch of the third biosimilar pegfilgrastim.

Number 1: The FDA approved Pfizer’s adalimumab biosimilar, referencing Humira.
