As we near the close of another eventful year, it’s worthwhile to reflect upon the major challenges, trends, and learnings that emerged in the biosimilar industry over the past year. This Top 10 Newsletter showcases the most popular articles published in Biosimilar Development in 2020. As this lineup of articles reveals, 2020 was a big year for biosimilars, despite the complexities posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. We saw great leaps in market competition, particularly in the U.S. market, growing support from sites of care, patients, and physicians, and the rise of small-to-midsize companies tackling biosimilar pipeline development. As is to be expected in a growing market, however, questions and concerns remain about proposed or existing policies, continued barriers to market access, and regulatory pathway inefficiencies.
I hope you find this year-end review both thought-provoking and beneficial — and that you have a wonderful holiday season. If you have any ideas for future editorial coverage or are interested in submitting your own content, please email me. I would love to hear from you.
