Explain That Biosimilars are not Exact Generic Equivalents
Questions will come up about "biosimilars"...due to the launch of the FIRST biosimilar, Zarxio (zar-zee-oh, filgrastim-sndz).
Zarxio is a biosimilar for Neupogen. Expect to also see biosimilars for Epogen, Humira, and Remicade in the next few years.
We know biologics are derived from living organisms and usually contain larger, much more complex molecules than traditional drugs.
