Highs and lows for biosimilars during 2009/2010

A lot has happened in the biosimilars’ industry during 2009/2010.

Is US Congress poised to hinder biosimilars market entry?

A proposal by US Democratic Representative Anna Eshoo included in the US House health reform bill, would give developers of innovative biomedical drugs 12 years of data exclusivity from generic competition, significantly extending their patent rights, writes Los Angeles Times columnist Michael Hiltzik. Ms Eshoo said her proposal would give original makers of biotech drugs adequate profit to discover new treatments without discouraging generic drugmakers from working on follow-on biologics.
