ABSTRACT

Biologics are the fastest growing segment of the pharmaceutical industry, offering innovative treatment for life threatening diseases. High costs make the treatment inaccessible to most patients. This, coupled with many biologics going off patent, have triggered interest in the affordable analogues of innovator termed as biosimilars.
