Expert Opinion on Biological Therapy – Biosimilars

About the special issue

A biosimilar is a biological medicine that has been shown not to have any clinically meaningful differences from the originator medicine in terms of quality, safety, and efficacy. Where regulatory agencies have already recommended the originator biological medicine, the same guidance will normally apply to a biosimilar of that originator. Importantly, the advent of multiple biosimilars of originator drugs provides a major opportunity to reduce cost, which can help to support patient access to biological therapies.

As we move towards the third decade of biosimilar research, Expert Opinion on Biological Therapy will be publishing its fourth yearly special issue on this topic. In addition to considering papers relating to health economics, bioequivalence and real-world evidence, the Editors are particularly keen to collate a series of articles on differing global perspectives of the future of biosimilars. Drug evaluations, reviews, original research, short editorials and perspectives are all welcome. If you are interested in contributing, or would like to learn more, then please reach out to the Commissioning Editor, Alice Bough, who will be happy to assist.
