Biosimilars also known as similar biological products, follow-up biologics, subsequent entry biological, second entry biological, biogenerics, multisource products, and off-patent biotech products as synonyms. Biosimilars are a type of biological product that is licensed (approved) by the FDA because they are highly similar to an already FDA-approved biological product, known as the biological reference product (reference product) and have been shown to have no clinically meaningful differences from the reference product. Biosimilars are a new class of drugs intended to offer comparable safety and efficacy to the reference, off-patent biological. Minor differences in clinically inactive components are allowed, however there must be no clinically meaningful differences between the biosimilar and the reference product in terms of the safety, purity, and potency of the product. A biosimilar can be approved only for those indications and condition(s) of use previously approved for the reference product. The problems/limitations with biosimilar are that, the two biosimilar have a different origin, the two biosimilars may have same therapeutic effect, may have different side-effects and hence require thorough testing.
