The 2010 Affordable Care Act amended the Public Health Service Act to create a new abbreviated licensure pathway for biological products that are demonstrated to be biosimilar to or interchangeable with an FDA-licensed biological product. A biosimilar should be shown to be highly similar to and to have no clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety and effectiveness from the reference product. In this session, we will discuss important regulatory and statistical issues in the evaluation of biosimilars. A regulatory perspective will be provided on key concepts, and and industry representatives will describe approaches to critical aspects of biosimilar development such as the evaluation of immunogenicity and inference based on the totality of the clinical evidence.

Learning Objectives
