As the demand of Biosimilars is ever increasing in the pharmaceutical market, it is very important to check them properly before releasing it to the mass. That is why there is a stepwise approach towards clinical trials of Biosimilars. It has various levels such as Extensive Molecular characterization Program, Pre-Clinical, Phase 1, Phase 3, Phase 4 and so on.

Cancer is something which if treated properly is not hard to beat. Most of the medicines that we currently have for Cancer are way too costly for any common human being, but Cancer being one of the largest cause of death needs proper treatment. This is where Biosimilars come handy. Biosimilars being cheaper can increase access worldwide to potentially life saving  biologics.

 

Drug development is the process of bringing a new pharmaceutical drug to the market once the led component has been identified through the process of drug discovery. It further has pre-clinical and clinical development procedure. Once the drug has been developed, it is important to check its mode of function, this is termed as the drug delivery.  Once this has been done, the drug can be qualified for usage.  This session will be looking on the such following topics.

 

  • Track 5-1Research & Development in Drug Designing
  • Track 5-2Drug Designing Docking
  • Track 5-3Types of Drug Design
  • Track 5-4ADME(T)

This session of the Biosimilars 2019 will be looking into the future and FDA initiatives that have already been announced to include enhanced tracking and follow-up of post market issues, planned improvements in AERS, and pilots of new post market drug-monitoring strategies.

Bioequivalence focuses on the equivalence of release of the active pharmaceutical ingredient from the pharmaceutical product and its subsequent absorption into the systemic circulation. This session has utmost importance in context to the fact that only a suitably bioequivalent drug candidate that conforms the results in all respects to the original licensed product can be called as biosimilar drug.

Of all attempts towards developing a follow on biologics or a biosimilar drug the main detection point stands at the bioequivalence assessment. Once the bioequivalence has been obtained it can be 70% ascertained the drug qualifies to be a suitable biologics or biosimilars.

 

  • Track 7-1Strategies for the bioequivalence assessment of topical dosage forms
  • Track 7-2Bioequivalence approaches for transdermal dosage forms
  • Track 7-3Bioequivalence assessment of respiratory dosage forms

Biosimilars is a biologic medical product which is copy of an original product that is manufactured by a different company. There are some specific scientific consideration for criteria, design and analysis regarding development of Biosimilars. Biosimilars are officially approved versions of original biosimilar innovator products, and can be manufactured when the original product's patent expires.

This session shall be highly beneficial for the biosimilar industry researchers to update themselves on the latest research updates from around the world. This session also finds place for all the biosimilar exhibitions associated with the field of biosimilars and biologics.

A biopharmaceutical is also known as a biologic(al) medical product. It is any pharmaceutical drug product which is manufactured in, extracted from, or semisynthesized from biological sources. They are different from totally synthesized pharmaceuticals. They include vaccines, blood and blood components, allergenics, somatic cells, gene therapies, tissues, recombinant therapeutic protein, and living cells used in cell therapy.

The safeguarding of product trade secret, its formulations and other process parameters by law is usually covered by IPR. It includes those as patents, copyrights, industrial design rights, trademarks etc. IPR is of prime importance in the field of biologics and biosimilars. Most scientist and industries tend to retain their monopoly business by exercising the IPR.

The very name Biosimilars calls for the occurrence of Intellectual Property rights laws and by-laws. Hence this session is of utmost interest to the attorneys and law personnel.

Biosimilars are the generic version of biological. It is the new buzz word in pharmaceutical industry. Biosimilars are highly similar to licensed reference product not withstanding minor differences in clinically inactive components; also there are no clinically meaningful differences between the biologicals and the reference product in terms of safety, purity, and potency. This track includes: Licensing of  biosimilars, Biosimilars regulation, Patent issues, BLA filing for biosimilars, Biosimilars regulatory prospects of BRIC countries, a paradigm of traditional generics to Biosimilars, Biowaiver approval for Biosimilars and other aspects of Biosimilar approvals. Biosimilars 2018 will provide an excellent and global opportunity to the scientists, partners and pharma leaders from Biopharmaceutical and Biotechnology industries to innovate and to explore the strategic market for Biosimilars and Biologics with a clear picture of the regulatory approach for biosimilars and biologics.
