3rd International Conference and Exhibition on Biowaivers, Biologics & Biosimilars

Abstract
Biosimilars also known as follow-on biologics are biologic medical products, whose active drug substance are made by a living organism or derived from a living organism by means of recombinant DNA or controlled gene expression methods. The Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act of 2009 (BPCI Act) was originally sponsored and introduced on June 26, 2007 by Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA). It was formally passed under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPAC Act), signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. The BPCI Act was an amendment to the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) to create an abbreviated approval pathway for biological products that are demonstrated to be highly similar (biosimilar) to a FDA approved biological product. The BPCI Act is similar, conceptually, to the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 (also referred to as the "Hatch-Waxman Act") which created biological drug approval through the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFD&C Act). The BPCI Act aligns with the FDA's longstanding policy of permitting appropriate reliance on what is already known about a drug, thereby saving time and resources and avoiding unnecessary duplication of human or animal testing. The FDA has released a total of four draft guidelines related to biosimilar or follow-on biologics development. Upon the release of the first three guidance documents the FDA held a public hearing on May 11, 2012. A summary of the key issues raised is available for review in the journal New Pharma Thinkers. A biosimilar product is ?expected to produce the same clinical result in any given patient,? according to the FDA. How similar is similar enough? Given the complex nature of monoclonal antibodies and soluble receptors, it?s unlikely there will be a one-size-fits-all definition.
