Research presented at the 2017 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting showed that SB3, a proposed biosimilar to trastuzumab, has comparable efficacy, safety, immunogenicity, and pharmacokinetics to the reference product based on the breast pathological complete response.
After switching studies, research in patients with breast cancer receiving neoadjuvant myelosuppressive chemotherapy has found clinical equivalence between filgrastim and its biosimilar, according to results presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
Biosimilar molecules have gained access to the US market, and providers and patients are steadily warming up to the idea of using these products, but challenges still exist. Here are 5 of the recent developments in the biosimilar landscape.
