The next OBN Senior Executive Breakfast event, taking place at SCI in Belgravia on Thursday 21 September. The event will include insight and a round table discussion on the topic of:
‘Are Biosimilars and Biosuperiors the generic equivalent to small molecule therapeutics, and are they an opportunity or threat to the Biotech Industry?’
Biologics with estimated sales of $100 billion will come off patent by 2020, presenting major commercial opportunities for the development of Biosimilars and Biosuperiors. The speakers will share their expert views on the potential growth and significant hurdles facing the wide-scale development and commercialisation of this emerging industry, including:
- When is a biological ripe for development as a biosimilar? Where’s the competition?
- Identifying and streamlining the technical and regulatory process in producing commercially viable BioSimilars
- The ‘Biosuperiors proposition’ – pros and cons
- Routes to commercial success – re-educating existing markets and/or aiming for new territories?
- Risk mitigation strategies
The speakers will share some success stories from major players in the Biosimilars and Biosuperiors market and will also address whether Biosimilars will impact the future market for novel biologics and inhibit the opportunities for R&D Biotech companies.
