Accord’s BLA for its Ustekinumab (Stelara®) Biosimilar Accepted by FDA; Settlement with Janssen Permits Launch by 15 May 2025

Jan 4, 2024

Accord BioPharma, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intas Pharmaceuticals, announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted its Biologics License Application (BLA) for DMB-3115, its proposed biosimilar to Janssen’s Stelara®.

DMB-3115 was jointly developed by Dong-A St and Meiji Seika Pharma, which granted Intas exclusive licensing rights worldwide excluding certain Asian countries, in an agreement announced in 2021.  Accord BioPharma will be responsible for US commercialisation.

In the same announcement, Accord announced that in October 2023 it reached a settlement with Janssen that would allow Accord to launch DMB-3115 in the US no later than 15 May 2025, pending FDA approval.
