Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  •  Biological medicines contain active substances (substances that produce the desired therapeutic effect) that are
    produced by, or extracted from, living organisms. They are often made up of proteins that are naturally produced in the human body. When a biological medicine is given to a patient, it functions like the natural protein, resolving symptoms and preventing or slowing the progression of the disease.
  • A biosimilar medicine is developed to be highly similar to a biological medicine that is already approved and available for patients, once the original patent has expired. The medicine that has already been approved is often called the ‘reference product’ or ‘originator product’.
  • A biosimilar is a biologic product that is similar, but not identical, to a reference product, and therefore requires separate marketing approval upon patent expiration of the
    reference product
  • Biosimilar or biosimilarity is defined in Section 351 of the PHS Act to mean that:
    1.“The biological product is highly similar to the reference product notwithstanding minor differences in clinically inactive components,” AND
    2.“There are no clinically meaningful differences between the biological product and the reference product in terms of the safety, purity, and potency of the product”.
  • The bio similar product is expected to produce the same clinical result as the reference product in any given patient
  • Large number of biological drug patents expire 2015 on wards
  • Manufacture process is complex
    and expensive to achieve “similar” quality, safety, and efficacy profile
  • There are about 150 biologics marketed worldwide and about 370 more are under development. Within the next 10 years (2009-2019) a total of 21 of these biologicals will lose their patent
  • Biologics include a wide range of therapeutics, including recombinant hormones, growth factors, blood products, monoclonal antibody-based products, recombinant vaccines, and advanced technology products
  • Biologics are among the most
    expensive drugs on the market, with average costs about 25 times that of no biologic drugs.
