Oncolytic Biosimilars: An Opportunity to Reduce Oncology Treatment Costs

Inclusion of oncology biosimilars in clinical pathways is one approach to reducing costs in this therapeutic area without compromising outcomes for cancer patients. There are currently eight Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved oncolytic biosimilars in the US market. Patients, providers, payers, policymakers, and manufacturers are all stakeholders that will be affected by these new biosimilars—and they all influence the placement of biosimilars in clinical pathways to ensure their appropriate use.

Oncolytic biosimilars have the potential to save the healthcare system billions of dollars each year as more biologics lose exclusivity. In this white paper, EVERSANA experts explore the biosimilar market implications for each stakeholder and how to ensure this cost savings.
