Precongress Satellite on Biosimilars: The science, regulation, practice and education of follow-on biologic pharmaceuticals


Organised by the FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section and the FIP Board of Pharmaceutical Sciences


Marianne Ivey (FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section, USA) and Michael Ward (FIP Board of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Australia)


Biologic pharmaceuticals are very targeted medications that have made a major contribution to the clinical outcomes of patients with challenging diseases and conditions. These pharmaceuticals are very expensive and competition from products that are biologically similar has the potential of increasing patient access at a lower cost. The complexity of the science and practice of using these medications makes pharmacists’ education of these agents critical to their appropriate use. This pre-congress satellite will address these areas with active learning opportunities for the audience.
