In a continuation from Part 3 of this panel discussion, Goodwin and Bristows continue their discussion with senior in-house counsel at the forefront of the biosimilars industry to discuss the pace of biosimilars market entry in the EU and U.S., why the pace of biosimilars market entry has been different in those two markets, and what the future holds. In this final segment, the panel covers topics including price competition, whether biosimilar sales have justified high development costs, and regulatory issues such as interchangeability.
