Study Finds Efficacy of Samsung Bioepis’ SB8 (bevacizumab biosimilar) Comparable to Genentech and Roche’s Avastin® (bevacizumab) for Treatment of Non–Small Cell Lung Cancer

Jan 16, 2024

A study evaluating results from a Phase 3, randomised, double blind trial sponsored by Samsung Bioepis was published on 16 January 2023 in the journal, Frontiers in Pharmacology. The results show that Samsung Bioepis’ SB8 (bevacizumab biosimilar) had a comparable efficacy to Genentech’s Avastin® (bevacizumab) for treatment of non–small cell lung cancer.

On 24 January 2024, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved Samsung Bioepis’ Onbevzi® (SB8), biosimilar to Genentech’s Avastin® (bevacizumab), to treat colorectal cancer, breast cancer, non-squamous small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), renal cell cancer, glioma, epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer, and carcinoma of the cervix.
