Biosimilars/Biologic – A Biologic Drug Revolution

  • Biosimilars/Biologic medicines are large, complex molecules that are made in living cells grown in a laboratory. Biologic medicines are often 200 to 1,000 times the size of a small molecule or chemical drug such as aspirin. Due to both their large molecular size and fragile molecular structure, biologic medicines are almost always injected into the patient’s body.
