Biosimilars Congress India 2016

The phenomenal growth of the Biosimilars industry and the recent global shift from conventional small molecule drugs to biologicals has encouraged India to look at Biosimilars as a lucrative sector. With the recent Make in India initiative and the support provided by the Indian regulators for development of biosimilars, there is a clear incentive for the major players in the pharma industry to embrace biosimilars as they are a less costly alternative to biologicals to develop yielding very high returns .

However, development of biosimilars is a lengthy process which requires heavy investment and involves a lot of challenges given the complexities of the large molecules. Also, it is very difficult to develop biosimilars with no clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety and efficacy to that of the reference product. To address these challenges, CPhI India is launching the Biosimilars Congress India 2016 scheduled from 13 – 14 October, 2016 in Hyderabad.
