Many biologic therapies serve as key components of standard-of-care management approaches for patients with hematologic malignancies, including active treatment and supportive care. However, many such biologic options are quite costly, potentially limiting the access of treatments which may improve outcomes for patients. Biosimilars are biologics that are highly similar to the reference biologic products, and they may offer the potential to bridge the treatment gap. Many health care providers lack familiarity with the complex regulatory approval process pathway for biosimilars, as well as safety and efficacy data for biosimilars that are emerging or have already been approved. This activity will provide clinicians with updates on the latest clinical advancements in biosimilar treatments for hematologic malignancies.
This activity features video interviews with leading clinical experts who will review and discuss aspects of biosimilars important to cancer care providers, including basic scientific principles of biosimilars and their production, FDA regulatory pathways and requirements, the intricacies of clinical study design and data interpretation, biosimilar agents in different stages of development for the management of patients with hematologic malignancies, and practical issues related to potential clinical integration.
