The U.S. biosimilars market is a fast approaching reality. For example, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, better known as the healthcare reform introduced by President Barack Obama, includes a provision for the establishment of a Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval pathway for biosimilars. However, much uncertainty lies ahead, including the market potential as a function of physician adoption of biosimilars, as well as the fact that Amgen’s new Enbrel patent could delay a biosimilar version for 17 years.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan’s (pharma.frost.com) Specialty Physicians Discuss their Opinions of the United States Biosimilars Market research includes an overview of a panel discussion with specialty physicians who are expected to be among the first users of biosimilars in the U.S. This research previews the thoughts and expectations of practitioners to gain insight into some of the major factors which could influence market uptake.

“Based on this representative sample of physicians, the overall adoption of biosimilars can be expected to experience widespread uptake,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Jennifer Brice. “This is in light of anticipated access to comparable therapeutic options at a lower cost versus high-cost biologics.”

Main factors with the potential to influence the rate and extent of uptake include cost, safety and efficacy data (including testing in specific patient populations), and reputation of the manufacturer. Biosimilars produced by companies that lack experience in developing and manufacturing biologics may be met with skepticism as opposed to companies with experience and a strong track record in the biologics sector.

“Physicians generally agreed that those companies with a solid reputation and strong track record of producing high-quality products would likely be trusted to bring a quality biosimilar product to market, regardless of geographic location,” said Frost & Sullivan Senior Industry Analyst Debbie Toscano. “Experience with biologics, as opposed to experience with generics, is key. However, many physicians will likely be skeptical of companies based in developing countries such as India or China that lack a strong reputation due to negative past experiences.”

Patients may perceive biologics, as opposed to biosimilars, as superior products simply due to their cost, as many people associate price with quality. A clear explanation of the financial advantages of developing a biosimilar, coupled with strong clinical data to support non-inferiority, may help to improve any negative perceptions of biosimilars. This positive clinical data from well-designed clinical trials may also increase the confidence level of physicians and help alleviate the concern of being forced to prescribe an inferior product. Strong clinical data will be the main driver of initial practitioner acceptance of biosimilars and biobetters.

“Potential skepticism may be overcome with the help of convincing clinical data for products from reputable companies highly experienced with biologics,” said Brice. “As positive real-world experience is gained, uptake is expected to gradually increase.”
