Boehringer Ingelheim files Citizen Petition for interpretation

Dec 2, 2020

Boehringer Ingelheim filed a Citizen Petition asking the Commissioner of Food and Drugs to interpret the term ‘strength’ in s 351(k) of the PHS Act for parenteral solutions to mean ‘total drug content’. The current interpretation does not allow a biological product to be licensed as a biosimilar and/or interchangeable product if there is any variation in inactive drug volume. BI has argued that the proposed interpretation may increase access to more affordable biosimilar and interchangeable biological products.
