Dr Esteva speaks with ecancertv at ASCO 2016 about biosimilars, an emerging class of therapeutic agents with similar activity to known therapies, yet distinct molecular arragements.
He summarises the definition and construction of a biosimilar, how these might be incorporated into wider clinical practice, and regulatory issues in setting a biosimilar apart from its analogue therapeutics.
A trastuzumab biosimilar is the focus of research by Dr Hope Rugo, whose interview is available here.
