Biologic agents have been proven to be highly effective in treating inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), adult ulcerative colitis (UC), psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis (PsA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), and adult and pediatric Crohn’s disease (CD). Unfortunately, many health care plans restrict the use of these agents due to high cost.

Biosimilars are biopharmaceuticals that have been genetically engineered to be highly similar – meaning any difference is minor and not clinically meaningful – to an already existing approved biologic product.  While biosimilars have been available in Europe since 2005, the first biosimilar monoclonal antibody in the United States, infliximab, has recently been approved for use in treating an array of inflammatory diseases.
