At the New York State Rheumatology Society 2015 Fall Meeting, held October 2nd in Saratoga, NY, ASBM presented a briefing entitled “Biosimilars: Regulatory Challenges and Physician Perspectives”. which discussed the current state of U.S. and international biosimilar regulation, including the topics of biosimilar naming, labeling, and substitution. ASBM shared survey data from physicans in eleven countries on these issues. Mr. Reilly also expressed his confidence the FDA will soon issue its long-awaited guidance on interchangeability, which would define the criteria a biosimilar must meet in order to be safely substituted for its reference product.
