Course overview

With some of the world’s best-known biologics continuing to face patent expiration in the coming years, the biosimilar market is set for continued growth.

This seminar will provide you with a global overview of biosimilars and how they differ from the original biological product. The programme will discuss the unique considerations of biosimilars as compared with small molecule generics.

Our expert trainer will cover the regulatory pathways and challenges for both the EU and US for biosimilars, and explore the key dossier requirements for biotech products compared to pharma products. Strategies for development of biosimilar products will also be discussed and you will be introduced to key biological requirements and the concept of totality for biological review.

I gained much more understanding than what I had intended to. The trainer also involved everybody in the course and did not make it boring. The topics of non-clinical, clinical, strategy as well as market entry/IP etc were covered briefly too. So that was an added advantage.
