Biosimilars In Emerging Markets: Is It A Level Playing Field?

PRA Health Sciences (PRA)

Governments, healthcare payers, and social and health reforms, combined with the increased incidence of conditions such as cancer and diabetes are paving the way for increased uptake of biologic medicines in emerging markets. However, expensive biologic medicines can be prohibitive to many patients, creating a high level of unmet clinical need. At its best, the global expansion of biosimilars can mean a robust and steady supply of existing and new drugs reaching far-flung patient populations, but localized biosimilar drug developments, especially in China and India, combined with a lack of robust pharmacovigilance systems, threaten to derail the industry by putting patient health at risk.
