Artsen willen betere etikettering van biosimilars

29 april 2016

European physicians want more information in the biosimilar label than is currently available, according to a new study initiated and supported by EuropaBio.
When comparing a standard label of an authorized biosimilar with a label containing additional relevant information, 83% of physicians preferred the one with additional information about what data had been generated with which product, according to a press release. In addition, 91% said that they use the label frequently or occasionally as a source of information and 87% said it was helpful, or very helpful, to include a clear statement on the origin of the biosimilar’s data on the label (Healthcare Packaging, 19 april 2016).
