Editors Comments
European Medicines Agency regulatory requirements ensure the same high standards of quality, safety and efficacy for biosimilars as for originator biologicals, and also include a rigorous comparability exercise with the reference product but they are not universally accepted by regulatory bodies outside of the European Union (EU). It should be noted that ‘productos biológicos similares’ approved in Perú might not have been authorized if they had been subjected to the strict regulatory processes required for approval of biosimilars in the EU.
