Comparison of uptake, prices of biosimilars in USA, Germany, Switzerland

JAMA Network

About The Study: The findings of this study suggest that more biosimilars have been marketed in Germany and Switzerland than in the United States. Policies that counter anticompetitive practices in the United States could allow biosimilars to enter the market sooner and could also lower health care costs with improved access. Awareness of biosimilars should be promoted to increase uptake of biosimilars globally.
