Biosimilar is a type of biological product that is almost identical to the original product, which has undergone patent expiration. Development and validation of biosimilars are an important part of the overall production process. Regulation for biosimilar drugs plays an important role in maintaining the efficiency and balance between original and biosimilar drugs. There are various authorities such as U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA), which regulate the development and commercialization of biosimilars. Biosimilar drugs are available at relatively low prices as compared to patented drugs without compromising on efficacy.
Biosimilar has a complex structure, multi-layer manufacturing and immunogenicity risk due to which they require unique regulatory pathways for introduction in the market. Biosimilar ensures treatment of diseases considered to be incurable such as cancer and autoimmune disorders, they are developed independently and have same mechanism of action as patented drugs for the specific disease. There are different stages involved in the development of biosimilars such as product development, process development, clinical trial and regulatory approval and review.
Biosimilar pipeline analysis market taxonomy:
By Product Type
Patent expiration and low pricing is expected to fuel the biosimilar pipeline analysis market
Biosimilar market is under the initial phase of development, they are used for the treatment of various disorders such as autoimmune disease, cancer as per National Institute of Health 2012 report, there were more than 23.5 million people living with autoimmune disease in the U.S. and low pricing of biosimilar drugs make them affordable for people.
