Canadian Physicians’ Views on Biologics vs Biosimilars

Biologics are part of a growing class of medications that are very complex and expensive to manufacture, but highly effective in treating certain diseases. Biosimilars are essentially a “copy” of a biologic with minimal clinical differences. However, due to the complex manufacturing process, biosimilars can never be completely identical to biologics. Biosimilars offer a unique advantage primarily in cost savings compared to branded versions, and their availability is shifting the pharmaceutical landscape. MD Analytics recently conducted a poll to understand awareness and perceptions of Biosimilars among Canadian physicians.
