Two recent unanimous approval recommendations from FDA advisory committees regarding biosimilars is a signal of growing scientific acceptance and understanding of the biosimilar regulatory pathway, suggested The National Law Review in a report Tuesday. The National Law Review has created a chart summarizing pending and approved BLAs for biosimilars using publicly available information, the publication noted, but there are still two barriers to entry. As biosimilars gain FDA approval, patent issues remain a barrier and the exorbitant R&D cost prevent significant price disparities. Accordingly, insurers may be slow to add biosimilars to the formulary, The National Law Review suggested. (The National Law Review)
