Biosimilar and Regulatory Strategies

We believe that the success of company in Biosimilars is dependent on well thought Strategy coupled with a solid regulatory plan. It should take into consideration both global and local markets. This is specially important to plan based on the convergence of regulatory expectations of local and global regulatory agencies.

Significant cost savings can be achieve by developing a strategy with :

  • Competitive landscape
  • Multi-faceted product selection model
  • Pricing implications for being second or third entrants
  • Facility over-design & capacity modeling
  • Understanding partnership(s) and negotiation levers
  • Financial models to look at evaluate multi-variable scenario

Biosimilar Strategy

We help companies develop fully integrated strategy to support long term plans. The strategy includes portfolio assessment, capacity analysis, financial projection and schedule, market analysis, regulatory submission approach, Cost of Goods evaluation, Make-Acquire assessment and facility conceptual design.

Regulatory Submission Strategy

Biosciencescorp offers expertise so companies can evaluate their regulatory strategy and pathway before spending money without knowing what regulators want. Our strategies begin with advice directly from the regulators that provide sponsors with clear direction on their development and clinical requirements.

Biosimilar is highly competitive space and many companies are racing to launch product. As second and third entrant to the market the impact to pricing could be up to 50%.
We can help model this impact as part of the strategic plan which allows for a more realistic financial assessment
