CURRENT ADVOCACY WORK


Biosimilars
Biosimilars, which are like generic versions
of biologics will be available in Australia
very soon. However unlike normal generic
drugs, biologics are complex medicines
and cannot be copied identically. This has
been a great source of concern for CJA
and other organisations due to the possible
safety risks to patients. The government
has also passed a bill to allow substitution
of biosimilars at pharmacy level which has
outraged the medical community.
