Interchangeable Biologic/Biosimilars

  • An “interchangeable” biological product is biosimilar to the reference product and can be expected to produce the same clinical result as the reference product in any given patient. To be approved as interchangeable, research must show that the biosimilar drug produces the exact same results in an individual patient, that a person can take either drug and expect the same symptom reduction and same side effects. To date, no biosimilars have been approved as interchangeable.
