Biobetters

The term biobetter refers to a recombinant protein drug that is in the same class as an existing biopharmaceutical but is not identical; it is improved over the original. Biobetters build on the success of existing, approved biologics but are considered less of a commercial risk than developing a brand new class of biologic. Biobetters are not entirely new drugs and they aren't generic versions of drugs, either. While many consider biosimilars to be generic versions of biotech drugs, it isn't possible to create a generic biologic drug. That's because biopharmaceuticals are produced in living organisms - such as animals or bacteria - and cannot be copied exactly.
