First biosimilar adalimumab launched in the US by Amgen

Jan 31, 2023

The much anticipated launch of the first US Humira biosimilar occurred with Amgen launching Amjevita® (adalimumab) on 31 January 2023, pursuant to its settlement agreement with AbbVie which was penned in September 2017.  Amjevita® is the first adalimumab biosimilar to be launched in the US and is available at a Wholesale Acquisition Cost 55% below the current Humira® list price.  Biosimilars developed by Alvotech, Celltrion, Mylan/Viatris, Sandoz, Momenta, Pfizer, Fresenius Kabi, Samsung Bioepis/Merck, Coherus and Boehringer Ingelheim are able launch in the US later this year, in accordance with their settlements with AbbVie.

On 16 September 2022 Pearce IP prepared a Vlog in its PiPCast® series on IP strategies to enable the launch of biosimilars around the world, with a particular focus on Australia.
