Biosimilars is a Biologic medical product which is copy of an original product that is manufactured by a different company. Biosimilars are officially approved "innovative" versions of original products, and can be manufactured when the original product's patent expires. Reference to the innovator product is an integral component of the approval. This session also finds place for all the Biosimilar Exhibitors associated with the field of Biosimilar and Biologics. 2014 was a banner year for orphan drugs, which are drugs that treat "rare" diseases/disorders affecting fewer than 200,000 people in the U.S. A total of 41 new molecular entities (NMEs) and biologics (BLAs) were approved by the FDA in 2014 - 15 of those were approved in December alone (11 in final two weeks.

The generic version of Biologicals- “Biosimilars” is the new buzz word in the world of pharmaceutical industry. Biosimilars are highly similar to their licensed reference product not withstanding minor differences as excipients in the formulation; also there are no remarkable differences between the Biologicals and the reference product in terms of safety, purity, and potency. However, there are certain challenges in way of its development and receiving a green signal for launching into the market. Newer biologics also are targeting widespread diseases, with profound implications: a drug that costs $20,000 per year that is useful for 1 person in 100,000 has much less effect on a health plan’s cost structure than a $5,000-per-year drug that is useful for 1 in 100 people.

The safeguarding of product trade secret, its formulations and other process parameters by law is usually covered by IPR. It includes those as patents, copyrights, industrial design rights, trademarks etc. IPR is of prime importance in the field of Biologics and Biosimilars.

Most scientist and industries tend to retain their monopoly business by exercising the IPR. Currently, the US provides 12 years of exclusivity for new biological products under the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (BPCIA).

The provision providing 12 years exclusivity was buried inside the 20,000-page healthcare law. Eight years of exclusivity would keep biologic medicines out of the hands of many who need them. Prices frequently exceed $100,000.
