Russian infliximab biosimilar has been proved equivalent to Remicade® in international clinical trials
BIOCAD has now completed the international clinical studies of infliximab biosimilar in ankylosing spondylitis and has finished the main phase of the international clinical study in rheumatoid arthritis. All studies were conducted in direct comparison with Remicade®. The therapeutic effects of the BIOCAD's infliximab biosimilar have been shown equivalent to the effects of the originator, and the safety profiles of two drugs were similar even in the long-term. BIOCAD ran its clinical studies of the infliximab biosimilar in compliance with the most recent international guidelines including the EMA's guidelines on non-clinical and clinical investigation of similar biological medicinal products containing monoclonal antibodies.
