Celltrion’s Vegzelma® (Biosimilar Avastin® (Bevacizumab)) Listed By More Than 10 Formularies

Aug 23, 2023

Korea Biomed reported that Celltrion’s Vegzelma® (bevacizumab), biosimilar to Genentech’s Avastin®, has been listed on the formularies of over 10 US insurers since its US launch on 17 April 2023.  One of these includes a top-five insurer in terms of patient enrolment.  While the exact insurers’ names remain undisclosed, the recent listings mean Vegzelma® is now accessible to roughly 30% of the US population. Celltrion aspires to amplify its coverage to surpass 60% of Americans by early 2023.

On 11 May 2023, Celltrion began supplying Vegzelma® in Italy and Belgium.
