First Biosimilar Launch: JAMP Pharma Launches Alvotech-Developed Jamteki™ (ustekinumab) in Canada

Mar 1, 2024

On 1 March 2024, JAMP Pharma announced that it launched the first ustekinumab biosimilar to Janssen’s Stelara® in Canada.  Jamteki was approved by Health Canada in November 2023 and JAMP’s launch follows a settlement between Alvotech and J&J last month regarding ustekinumab. 

Jamteki was developed by Alvotech and is JAMP Pharma’s second biosimilar launch in Canada in two years, following the Canadian launch of Simlandi® (adalimumab) biosimilar of AbbVie’s Humira® (adalimumab) in 2022.  The approved presentations for Jamteki™ are a 45mg/0.5mL and 90mg/mL pre-filled syringe with a passive safety device for subcutaneous injection.
