The Role of Biosimilars in Cancer Treatment
Challenges remain in the acceptance of biosimilars by physicians, payers and patients in the U.S., similar to those faced by generic drugs when they were first introduced to the market. Increased education and awareness of the FDA-approval process for biosimilars and increased understanding of the evidence required to demonstrate their safety and efficacy will help to close this practice gap and ensure the acceptance and use of biosimilars in clinical practice.

Recorded Presentation from the NCCN Pharmacy Updates: Establishing a Place in Therapy for Biosimilars in Oncology
Clinical oncology pharmacists have the opportunity to provide education on biosimilars and be a part of the multi-disciplinary decision-making process for incorporating biosimilars into practice sites. In addition, pharmacists will need training on reporting post-marketing surveillance data regarding immunogenicity, product variability and drift of biosimilars as use becomes widespread.
