Abstract :

Cancer represents a significant & growing burden on healthcare system. Biological agents are important therapeutic modality for cancer management. But cost barrier is a deterrent factor for wider use of these agents. In the current scenario of increased cancer drug budgets and loss of patent protection on major biological therapies used in oncology, biosimilars offer an important opportunity to provide clinically effective medications at reduced cost. Biosimilars are currently available for use in oncology in the supportive caresystem. The focus of biosimilar development is likely to switch to agents such as monoclonal antibodies. Though developmental and regulatory challenges are there, biosimilar approved by regulatory authority offer a safe and effective alternative to originator biological therapies. Greater adoption of biosimilar in oncology represents a key approach in reducing cancer drug budgets and improving cancer patient?s access to appropriate therapies.
