Why biosimilars and not biogenerics?

Stringent standards for generic products of highly complex biopharmaceuticals

Prof. Dr. Theo Dingermann

Medicines produced using genetic techniques have existed since 2006, called “similar biological medicinal products” or “biosimilars”. Until a year ago, this was a fairly low-profile group, even in expert circles. This has all changed now, however, with the recent licensing of the first biosimilar antibody.
