Celltrion to supply Vegzelma® (bevacizumab) in Italy and Belgium

May 11, 2023

Korea Biomed has reported that Celltrion Healthcare has won bids to supply Vegzelma®, biosimilar to Genentech’s Avastin® (bevacizumab), in Italy and Belgium to treat metastatic colorectal and breast cancer.  Celltrion says that it will supply three Italian provinces (Lombardy, Emilia Romagna, and Toscana), which make up ~40% of the market in Italy, for two to three years.  It will supply two Belgian hospital groups (Brugge Regional Hospital Group and Onze LIeve Vroiw General Hospital) for two years.

Celltrion launched Vegzelma® in the US (April 2023), and despite being “the latecomer”, Celltrion says it has achieved “significant results in key European countries since its launch, thanks to a flexible pricing strategy implemented”.
