The Fifth Latin American Forum on Biosimilars (FLAB) was held in Brasilia, Brazil in 2015 with the theme of ‘Interchangeability and Automatic Substitution’. Discussions centred on the approval of CT-P13, an infliximab biosimilar; and RTXM83, a proposed rituximab biosimilar, in both Brazil and Argentina. Following these discussions, Babini et al.  published a FLAB position statement on the approval of these monoclonal antibody biosimilars in the context of current regulations in these two Latin American countries.
