ReportsnReports - Biosimilars china update

  1. 1. Biosimilars: China UpdatePublished:September 2011No.Of Pages:51Price:US $ 1900IntroductionCurrently, there is no definition, guidance or pathway for biosimilars in China, withdomestically manufactured versions of biologics, known as biogenerics. Due to limited R&Dcapabilities, most domestic companies manufacture simple biologics, although there is agrowing shift towards the development of both novel and biogeneric monoclonal antibodiesand second-generation biologics.Features and benefits* An overview of biologic regulations in China* Insight into the key drivers and resistors to biogeneric uptake in the China* Assessment of the key marketed and pipelines in the Chinese biogenerics market.* Provides a snapshot of key major biogeneric players and the strategies they haveimplemented.HighlightsPoor enforcement of patent protection provides significant opportunities for domesticcompanies. Manufacturers also benefit from low development costs as well as governmentsupport. As a result, biogenerics are priced much lower in China compared to originators.It is mandatory for biologics (and biogenerics) approved as “new drugs” (i.e. those thatreference a product not currently marketed in China), to undergo full Phase I–III clinicaltrials. However, only Phase III clinical trials are required for biogenerics which reference aproduct that is marketed domestically.A protracted and complicated drug registration process increases regulatory approvaltimelines, impacting market access, with further delays for drugs not manufactureddomestically. Also, despite many biogenerics being reimbursed, low purchasing power stilllimits uptake in China.Table Of ContentsEXECUTIVE SUMMARYIntroductionStrategic scoping and focusDatamonitor key findingsBiologic regulatory overview
