The laws establishing the US biosimilar approval pathway were passed in 2010, but the market for biosimilars is only beginning to gain speed. The causes for this slow start are complex and multifactorial and continue to affect biosimilar uptake and development. Veteran biosimilar industry journalist Stanton Mehr unravels the competing interests of stakeholders and pragmatically reframes the conversation: How did we arrive at today’s biosimilar marketplace? What biosimilar drug categories will thrive or fail? What dynamic forces may drive a biosimilar future in the US?
