  • Biosimilars, Biobetters, Or Both?: Report Highlights Manufacturing Considerations
    Biosimilars, Biobetters, Or Both?: Report Highlights Manufacturing Considerations

    I sat down with Kate Hammeke, VP of Industry Standard Research to discuss the biggest surprises or takeaways from this year’s report about the industry’s biologics and biosimilars manufacturing goals. But the conversation also evolved to some of the larger trends Hammeke expects to see impacting the biosimilar players in the future.

Samsung Bioepis: Applying The "Hunger" For Biosimilars To Novel Drugs

Since last year's feature article celebrating Samsung Bioepis' fifth anniversary, the company has seen a number of approvals and launches and has established a novel biologics development partnership. As such, I jumped on the opportunity to learn more about the company's ongoing efforts to realize a lower COGS, speed production, and manage risk in biosimilar and biologics development.

New U.S And Canadian Facilities Boosting Biologics Capacity

Biopharma executives have warned they need more biologics development and manufacturing capacities, particularly in North America. They haven’t been howling at the moon. Four announcements – within two days of each other – offer a sign of relief. And Amgen has provided Outsourced Pharma with its first public estimate of costs for one of those facilities.

Why Biosimilars Won’t Be “A Stake In The Heart Of Innovation”

There has not been much discussion about how biosimilars contribute to or will impact innovation — outside of helping the healthcare system afford costly novel therapies. I found my interest in this question sparked upon reading a recent headline, "Biosimilars: The Cure for Sky-High Drug Prices Or A Stake In The Heart Of Innovation?"

2018 Outlook: Biosimilar Trends To Watch

Last week, I published the first installment of a three-part roundtable discussion highlighting which 2017 trends/occurrences were most notable to the members of Biosimilar Development’s editorial advisory board. In addition to discussing 2017’s impact on the future of the industry, these experts also shared their thoughts on what to expect in 2018.

  • Does Quality Even Matter? 10 Things Quality Departments Should Stop Doing Now

    Senior quality leaders and the FDA agree quality organizations supporting pharma manufacturing often fall short of providing the support necessary to maintain and increase regulatory compliance and product quality. At the same time, some do not understand their actions and believe they are obstructionist and reflective of a strict compliance mentality with little regard for the business and its success. What would cause business partners to look at quality in such a way?

  • Nontraditional Design Concepts To Accelerate CAR T Processing

    Cell therapies, in particular, chimeric antigen receptor modified T cells (CAR-T), are showing enormous therapeutic promise, with cancer remission rates over 80 percent.1 This alone is forcing cell therapy manufacturing companies to develop strategies to build and scale up production at levels never contemplated before.
