LONDON – Critic, survival focused oncologists that make life-and-death treatment decisions are not still ready to accept biosimilars of proven targeted therapies. So what do pharmacos need to do to boost confidence and ensure adoption of biosimilars in this tough market?

According to a number of key opinion leaders (KOLs) in the USA, cost if the most essential factor driving the usage of biosimilar medicines in the country. Oncologists are refusing the moves to knock down prices from payers in spite of growing treatment outlay. Pharmas are required to understand precisely what evidence is required to persuade physicians to fall back on biosimilar treatments. The sizable majority of physicians demand more education on biosimilars both from companies and as postgraduate medical training. There are concerns over product naming conventions and labelling across the EU and the USA. The level of awareness of biosimilars is higher in Europe compared to the USA, although the situation is improving on the back of the recent introduction of Zarxio (Sandoz).
