How Should Biosimilar Companies Approach Real-World Evidence?
How Should Biosimilar Companies Approach Real-World Evidence?

Real-world evidence (RWE) has become increasingly important for innovative manufacturers looking to convince reluctant payers that their new medicine has a place in patient care. Indeed, many claim the changing nature of the data landscape in healthcare will revolutionize the way we consider evidence, but does this apply to biosimilars? Is there a real need to look at data from actual clinical practice before or after market entry for these products?

    The European Biosimilars Landscape: What To Expect In The Year Ahead

    Europe is set to have another significant year of biosimilar approvals and launches in 2018, following the slew of biosimilar approvals in 2017. Biosimilars of trastuzumab, adalimumab, and pegfilgrastim are soon to become additions to the European biosimilars armamentarium, with the potential to rapidly capture notable market shares owing to the cost savings they will offer European healthcare systems

  • Indication- And Reference-Based Pricing: A Positive For Biosimilar Manufacturers?
    Indication- And Reference-Based Pricing: A Positive For Biosimilar Manufacturers?

    To address the concept that the price of a treatment reflects its value for the patients being treated, some have recommended a shift from a one-drug, one-pricing approach to an indication- or reference-based pricing approach. 

  • 3 Biosimilar Barriers In Community Clinics
    3 Biosimilar Barriers In Community Clinics

    In the first of this two-part article, McKesson experts share insights on two biosimilar barriers they’ve noticed in community clinics and highlight their takeaways from infliximab’s and filgrastim’s experiences tackling these barriers.

  • Partnering With Insurers To Improve Biosimilar Access In The U.S.
    Partnering With Insurers To Improve Biosimilar Access In The U.S.

    Drug developers have found a powerful ally in their campaign to advance biosimilar adoption in the U.S. — the nation’s health insurance providers. Insurers are keen to drive down the price of reference biologics, and they view biosimilars as an important way to accomplish that goal.

  • 90 Studies Prove Biosimilars’ Safety And Efficacy: What Now?
    90 Studies Prove Biosimilars’ Safety And Efficacy: What Now?

    This review sought to answer two questions which have been plaguing the biosimilar industry since day one: will biosimilar switching have any impact on safety, and will biosimilars be the harbingers of increased immunogenicity? And it has provided us with far more than just answers to these questions.

  • Unlocking The Potential Of Real-World Data: Tapping Into Today’s Data To Improve Healthcare Tomorrow
    Unlocking The Potential Of Real-World Data: Tapping Into Today’s Data To Improve Healthcare Tomorrow

    Healthcare is undergoing a shift in how key stakeholders approach and evaluate patient data -- driven by growing access to and general use of real-world data, such as de-identified patient data collected and analyzed from registries, electronic health records, wearable devices, and administrative and healthcare claims databases. This type of data is increasingly being utilized by industry representatives to help inform device development, health system operations, formularies and resulting coverage, and patient care decisions.
