Systematic review: efficacy and safety of switching patients between reference and biosimilar infliximab.

Related Articles Systematic review: efficacy and safety of switching patients between reference and biosimilar infliximab. Aliment Pharmacol Ther. 2018 Nov 08;: Authors: Feagan BG, Lam G, Ma C, Lichtenstein GR Abstract BACKGROUND: Biosimilar versions of widely prescribed drugs, including the tumour-necrosis factor antagonist infliximab, are becoming increasingly available. As biosimilars are not identical copies of reference products, evidence may be required to demonstrate that switching between a reference biologic and biosimilars is safe and efficacious. To establish interchangeability, US Food and Drug Administration guidance states that studies must demonstrate that…

Nurses are critical in aiding patients transitioning to biosimilars in inflammatory bowel disease: education and communication strategies.

Nurses are critical in aiding patients transitioning to biosimilars in inflammatory bowel disease: education and communication strategies. J Crohns Colitis. 2018 Oct 04;: Authors: Armuzzi A, Avedano L, Greveson K, Kang T Abstract The increasing prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease and the high costs associated with biological therapies suggest that biologicals with lower costs, but no compromise on efficacy and safety, should be considered when developing a treatment plan for inflammatory bowel disease. Biosimilars offer a more cost-effective alternative, and although the European Medicines Agency has approved the use of…
