What is a biosimilar

The future of biosimilars

Considerations for biologic switching

Inflectra/CT-P13* has robust clinical data for switching patients from Remicade® to Inflectra/CT- P13*.1-10

EU and UK guidance supports switching from reference biologics to a biosimilar in appropriate patients.11-14

Decisions regarding treatment choice or physician-mediated switching must be a clinical decision made by a treating physician on an individual patient basis, supported by scientific evidence, ensuring safety of patients is not compromised, and with patient awareness.

Watch the video to discover more about the potential benefits of switching to a biosimilar:

*CT-P13 is marketed under different brand names including Inflectra and REMSIMA®.
†Remicade® is a registered trademark of MSD.
