What are biosimilars?

Biosimilars are biological medicinal products that are similar to another biological product that has already been authorised and which do not differ significantly from the original product in terms of quality safety and efficacy.

As such, biosimilars are copies of biological medicines that are already approved. Biosimilars therefore make these medicines more accessible to those who might not otherwise be able to afford them and, at the same time, offer patients the best treatments available.

Quality mindset

The treatment of millions of patients around the world will depend on the safe and reliable production of biopharmaceutical medicines.
