The Regulatory guidelines running parallel to the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) are the keystones in establishing a well-set ruling system to be adhered to when developing bio-similars either during or after the expiry of the patents of the innovator drugs. As the biologic drugs are developed for most of the life saving drugs, it becomes mandatory that the set guidelines are well adhered to by the similar biologics for proper manifestation and to be on par with the biologics which are highly complex drugs. There is an ever growing health concern for some of the highly dreaded diseases, especially the infectious ones, which tend to progress to malignant stage, like in the case of Human Papilloma Virus, if left without proper diagnosis followed by treatment. As drugs, vaccines and antibodies are being developed or are already developed, the need of the hour is affordability, accessibility and awareness in the emerging markets like India. The operational hurdles for the development of the bio-similars in the emerging markets├ó┬?┬? needs, flexibilities and relaxation in the complexities involved in the manufacturing process. It also seeks the immediate attention for the global harmonization from the various international bodies of the highly regulated markets. The introduction of the bio-therapeutics for the betterment of the mankind through its flexibilities in the regulatory norms with special focus to the developing world would go a long way in combating many diseases.
