Tori Marsh - August 14, 2018

Humira, Enbrel, Xarelto—these are some of the many expensive brand drugs that cost well over $400 per month, leaving many to count down the days until a cost-effective generic is approved. But how long will we have to wait? As much as 40 years in some cases.

A recent analysis by I-MAK reveals that drug makers have leveraged the patent system to prevent generic competition, retain monopolies on expensive drugs and raise drug prices. See More

FDA Approves Renflexis, Second Biosimilar for Remicade

Roni Shye - May 11, 2017

On April 21st, the FDA approved Renflexis (infliximab-abda), the second biosimilar to the popular medication Remicade, (infliximab) indicated for immune disorders.

A biosimilar is like a generic medication in that it is less expensive than the brand name medication. However, the difference is that biosimilars are made out living cells, so they may be slightly different from their counterpart. This usually means that the pharmacist will not substitute these medications without approval from a doctor. See More

You may be unfamiliar with the terms biologics or biosimilars but if you watch television you may have seen a commercial for them and not even know it! For example – the popular arthritis or Crohn’s medications Enbrel and Humira are biologics.

Biologics are medications that are typically expensive and usually obtained from a specialty pharmacy. Biologics are generally not used as first line treatment but instead considered by your doctor after other less expensive treatment options have been tried and failed. See More
