Session Description
Introduction of landmark legislation has changed the biotechnology marketplace, allowing for biosimilar products to be marketed in the U.S.  Biotechnology companies will have to defend prime marketplace real estate, protect the rewards granted by innovative R&D and potentially compete on price.  Historically, however, biosimilars have not generated much traction as evidenced by somatropin or epogen in Europe.  Is this an anomaly or are we facing a new reality?  This session invites the panel to discuss the challenges, lessons and opportunities associated with  biosimilars in the U.S.
