Product Details

The development of biosimilars is advancing rapidly, and the first biosimilar used to treat cancer in the United States has been approved. With more oncology biosimilar candidates in a robust pipeline, clinical pharmacists must have a comprehensive understanding of biosimilar development and stay abreast of biosimilar approvals for implementation in real-world clinical practice. This session will discuss the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s framework for biosimilar development, with a focus on analytical testing; review currently approved biosimilars and biosimilar candidates in hematology and oncology in the United States; and identify barriers to biosimilar uptake. After completion of this session, clinical pharmacists should have the tools to facilitate proper discussions at pharmacy and therapeutic meetings and provide education to patients and healthcare providers in order to increase access to these lifesaving medications.
