A biosimilar medicine (or similar biological medicine) is a biological medicine that contains a version of the active substance of an original biological product (reference product) for which equivalence has been demonstrated.

The similarity exercise ensures these attributes using state-of-the-art and highly sensitive analytical methods that determine the physicochemical structure and functional properties of the biosimilar as compared to the reference medicinal product.

Equivalence with the reference product must be established by means of an exhaustive “comparability exercise”. The object of this exercise is to demonstrate that the slight physicochemical differences that exist between the two products have no significant impact on the quality, efficacy and safety of the biosimilar, implying that the active substance of both medicinal products is essentially the same.
