The availability of biological medicines such as Epoietin has saved many lives, and improved the quality of life for patients. These medicines are expensive, and are not coming down in price, because of the absence of competition. For many years, originators and regulatory authorities argued that these medicines could not be “copied”. However, the increasing drug budgets, aging populations and reducing tax revenues has made the creation of a regulatory pathway for the development of biosimilars an economic imperative. However, there are regulatory constraints within which companies must operate.

The regulatory oversight and development of biosimilar medicines requires a unique blend of experiences, including NCE/NBE development, generic development experience, global regulatory affairs experience.
