Biosimilars in an era of rising oncology treatment options


New diagnostic technologies, including molecular profiling, have enabled advances in treatments of various cancers; this has significantly improved clinical outcomes, including overall survival. However, the high cost of biologic drugs may prevent patients from having access to optimal treatment. Introduction of lower priced biosimilar agents into the therapeutic armamentarium brings the potential to ease the burden on healthcare expenditure and facilitate better access to effective cancer treatments. Oncology biosimilars have shown comparable efficacy and safety based on clinical evidence and physicochemical quality data as well as in real-world settings. This paper aims to review changes in the management of oncology treatment and their implication with respect to biosimilars.
