Global Market Access Insights showcases growing biosimilars focus; physician resistance challenge

Based on recent findings there is a renewed focus on biosimilars on both sides of the Atlantic. In the U.S., biosimilars are expected to become a staple of therapy for some diseases by 2020[1], especially since pharmacy and medical directors say they will require at least 40% off net cost to actively switch from branded products. In Europe, a Global Access Express study with national and local payers across EU[2] indicate that despite the immediate uptake in biosimilars, deepening biosimilar penetration is still a challenge, with physician resistance ranking as the top hurdle.  According to the same study, payers report 90% of physicians in Spain resist biosimilars, on average the resistance across EU5 is over 70%. 

Global Market Access Insights also uncovered that the implementation of biosimilar care pathways varies significantly across autoimmune populations.
