Henlius, Innovent represent new breed of biosimilars companies in China
Bettering China's biosimilars
Monday, March 18, 2013
While many homegrown biologics marketed in China could be
perceived as biosimilars, most are unlikely to meet international standards and
are not marketed as such in China. But with an uptick in returnees and VC
investment, and improvement in manufacturing infrastructure, Chinese companies
such as Henlius
Biotech Co. Ltd. and Innovent
Biologics Inc. are aiming to develop true biosimilars that could
compete in the global market.
Current regulations in the EU
and U.S. require a biosimilar to have the same amino acid sequence as the
innovator biologic, and glycosylation patterns and other structural features
that are highly similar, so that the two products closely match in terms of
efficacy and safety.
