Abstract

As more patents on biological medicines expire, increased numbers of biologic copies, referred to as “biosimilars,” will likely become available in the United States in the coming years. With greater availability and the drive for health care savings, the use of biosimilars and of “follow-on” biological products is likely to increase in routine clinical practice. Health care practitioners need to be fully aware of these products and accompanying considerations if they are to make informed decisions together with their patients.
