This report features survey data portraying the perspectives of US physicians (cardiologists, CNS/ neurologists, oncologists, PCP, and respiratory/ pulmonologists) regarding their familiarity and prescription propensity for biosimilar products. This is not ISR’s first report on the views that US physicians hold regarding biosimilars. In comparison to our 2013 Biosimilar Primer report, physician familiarity with biosimilars has increased. With this data, biopharmaceutical companies, payers, and service providers can make more informed decisions regarding product marketing, delivery, and manufacturing.

Pricing of Biosimilar Products – What pricing expectations do physicians have for biosimilars? At what price would a physician recommend a biosimilar product over the original compound? Switching and DAW Preferences Importance of Pharmacy Notification if Different Drug Dispensed – How important is it that physicians are notified by the pharmacist when a patient receives a biologic medicine other than the one prescribed? Opinion on EU ban on Pharmacy-level Substitution — Many EU countries have mandated that there can be no pharmacy-level substitution for biosimilar products. What do physicians think of this ban? Pharmacy Level Substitutions – Understand physicians’ thoughts on pharmacy-level substitutions for biosimilar products. When to Use DAW Clause – How do physicians use the DAW clause differently when prescribing chemical and biological products? Frequency of DAW Prescriptions Written for Biosimilars – How often will physicians write the “DAW” clause for biologics with a biosimilar option? Preferred Clinical Testing for Biosimilars — Do physicians think biosimilars should have full-fledged clinical trials or follow chemical generics and just require pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetic, and bioequivalence testing? More Concerned about Safety or Efficacy — Are physicians most concerned with a new biosimilar product’s safety, efficacy, or neither? Report Contents

The following are examples of biosimilar activity taken from pharmaceutical industry publications during a two week period in April, 2014. • Boehringer Ingelheim’s chairman stated, “We see biosimilars as a future growth field.” BI’s most advanced biosimilar is a version of Sanofi’s insulin Lantus, which is being developed in partnership with Lilly and is currently undergoing regulatory review in Europe with a view to launch some point this year in the region. A US launch is planned for 2015. • Epirus Pharmaceuticals raised $36M to fund its biosimilar work, with a lead Phase III program for a Remicade knockoff along with follow-up programs for Humira and Avastin. Epirus’ strategy is to launch biosimilars outside of the US and Europe in hopes of improving their changes with local regulators while gaining government support to build facilities and win government contracts for lower- priced therapies. • Baxter is teaming up with Coherus BioSciences to develop a copy of Amgen and Pfizer’s Enbrel with plans to file for FDA approval in 2016. • Hospira persuaded a U.K. court to overturn two Herceptin patents, which means biosimilar competition could arise there at any time. • Catalent signed a deal to lend its biologics development technology to China’s Zhejang Hisun Pharmaceuticals. Under the agreement Catalent will supply the technology to develop biosimilars of Remicade, Humira, and Lemtrada. Catalent says its system can get biologics projects into the clinic three times faster than other approaches. • France passed a law that gives pharmacists the ability to substitute biosimilar drugs for the original. It only applies to patients who are starting a new course of treatment and who are getting products from retail pharmacies (not hospitals) and still allows the physicians to demand the original biologic product. • Japanese drugmaker Kyowa Hakko Kirin, who is partnering with Fuji to develop biosimilars, just finished construction on a new biologics plant and should be ready for operations in 1H2016. This report features survey data concerning the perspectives of US physicians (cardiologists, CNS/ neurologists, oncologists, PCP, and respiratory/ pulmonologists) regarding their familiarity and prescription propensity for biosimilar products. This is not ISR’s first report on the views that US physicians hold regarding biosimilars. In comparison to our 2013 Biosimilar Primer report, physician familiarity with biosimilars has increased.
