The Spanish Association of Biosimilar Medicines (BioSim) announced on 21 March 2018 that BioSim and the Federation of Spanish Medical Scientific Associations (FACME) have signed a collaboration agreement that includes the creation of a joint working group to share up-to-date information on biosimilars.

The agreement aims to generate and disseminate knowledge about biosimilars for medical professionals. The two associations have committed to establishing a system of exchange of information related to scientific and clinical knowledge, which they say will allow for educational and informative actions of joint interest. They will also offer recommendations and updated information in a joint manner, addressed to different health partners.

The joint working group will include the scientific-medical societies that are part of FACME, as well as others, that represent a group of specialists linked to the use and prescription of biosimilars.

Dr Fernando Carballo, President of FACME, said that ‘prescribing physicians should be an essential part in the process of discussion and adoption of agreements and decisions aimed at rationalizing the use of biologicals, including the use of biosimilars’. Likewise, the President of BioSim, Joaquín Rodrigo, underlined the fact that ‘the quality and effectiveness of treatments with biosimilars offer every day great opportunities to benefit patients’.
