• No, Biologics Are Not Natural Monopolies

    Biologics are not natural monopolies, as certain individuals continually assert. This assertion threatens future innovations, greater healthcare affordability, and patient access. This article, backed up with data, debunks the myth that biologics are natural monopolies.

  • Making Sense Of Antibody Epitope Claims

    Obtaining certain types of patent rights to antibodies has become increasingly challenging in the U.S. To comprehend this evolution, we must first take a careful look at what antibodies are, and then understand how they are claimed in a patent. 

  • Effectively Educating Clinicians And Patients On Biosimilars Across Europe: Getting The Right Message Across

    Biosimilars are here to stay, so it is essential that the different stakeholder groups (healthcare providers, patients) receive trustworthy and clear information about the principles and the value proposition.

  • Assessing CT-P13 SC’s Impact Across Indications

    This is the second article in a two-part series exploring the anticipated competitive dynamics for Celltrion’s subcutaneous (SC) infliximab bio-better, CT-P13 SC, in the U.S.The author explores how market dynamics across different autoimmune indications will drive distinct uptake of CT-P13 SC, highlighting the potential impact on TNF inhibitor competition.

  • Subcutaneous Infliximab In The U.S.: Defining CT-P13 SC’s Competitive Edge

    TNF inhibiting biologics still reign supreme when treating immunological diseases. GlobalData believes that Celltrion’s CT-P13 SC will likely see better success than IV infliximab biosimilars in the U.S. In Part 1 of this two-part article series, we assess the factors that may give CT-P13 SC a competitive edge over Remicade and IV infliximab biosimilars.

  • Regulatory, Legislative Actions Set The Tone For Biosimilars In 2021

    This article focuses on regulatory and legislative actions in 2020 that may impact the burgeoning biosimilars space in 2021 and beyond. In particular, the authors revisit the implications of the March 23, 2020 transition date, as well as FDA’s efforts to address biosimilar competition, interchangeability, and the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  • Changing Perceptions On Bioprocess Intensification, Continuous Processing

    Process intensification and continuous bioprocessing are concepts with inconsistent definitions. What's included often varies greatly and, in some ways, has become more about aspirational goal-setting than actual innovation adoption. Here, BioPlan Associates assesses the changing perspectives of 122 bioprocess decision-makers.


  • User Experience For Manual Injection Of 2 mL Viscous Solutions Is Enhanced By A New Prefillable Syringe

    Although subcutaneous administration improves patient compliance and quality of life by enabling at-home injections, as compared to intravenous or intramuscular route, the associated anxiety, pain, discomfort, and the frequency of injections can play a significant role in patient non-adherence with chronic subcutaneous treatments. In order to address these challenges, through reducing the required frequency of subcutaneous injections and increasing injection comfort for novel biotherapeutics, drug delivery systems are needed to enable the administration of large-volume injections and/or high-viscosity drugs. We developed a pre-fillable glass syringe featuring a stacked 8 mm needle with an ultra-thin wall (UTW) cannula technology as a solution.





The debate over whether the biosimilar regulatory paradigm can shift away from comparative efficacy trials has intensified over the past few years. This collection of articles serves as a snapshot of the many different components of this ongoing discussion.
