This webinar will help you understand the process, requirements, quality and safety considerations for demonstrating biosimilarity to a Reference Product. You will learn about what type and how much clinical data are needed to support a showing of biosimilarity.

Why Should You Attend:

On February 9, 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA” or “Agency”) released three highly anticipated guidance documents designed to answer industry questions regarding the development and approval of biosimilars (a/k/a follow-on biologics). The guidance documents provide specific advice and recommendations on steps applicants can take to obtain approval of a proposed biologic product under FDA’s proposed abbreviated approval pathway.

The Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act of 2009 (“BPCIA”) amended the Public Health Service Act by adding Section 351(k) which created an abbreviated approval pathway for biological products that are found to be “highly similar” or “interchangeable” with a reference biological product (e.g., vaccines, antibodies, blood and blood components, gene therapies, tissues, and proteins) that have already been approved or “licensed.”
