Study Finds Samsung Bioepis’ SB4 (etanercept) and Amgen’s ABP501 (adalimumab) Biosimilars Have Similar Safety Profile to Originator Biologics

Dec 19, 2023

A study published in Reumatismo found that Samsung Bioepis’ SB4, biosimilar to Amgen’s Enbrel® (etanercept), and Amgen’s ABP501, biosimilar to AbbVie’s Humira® (adalimumab) both have similar safety profiles to their respective originator products in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis.  The study also found that there was a reduced biosimilar retention rate at 24 months.  It concluded that biosimilars “could be considered a valid, safe, and less expensive alternative to originators”.
