SB2 is the first Samsung Bioepis biosimilar candidate submitted for review in the United States (US). If approved, the marketing and distribution of SB2 in the US will be handled by Merck, in accordance with a commercialization agreement signed in 2013.
“At Samsung Bioepis, we are dedicated to bringing affordable, high-quality biologic medicines to patients across the United States. Already in other countries, our biosimilars have started to play an important role in increasing patient access to high-quality treatment options, while driving down healthcare expenditures. We hope to do the same in the US,” said Christopher Hansung Ko, President & CEO of Samsung Bioepis. "We will continue our relentless drive for innovation and further advance one of the industry's largest biosimilar pipelines, so that more patients can have access to affordable medicines without compromising the quality of treatment.”
Samsung Bioepis’ BLA for SB2 was based on Phase 1 and Phase 3 clinical studies that tested the biosimilarity of SB2 to Remicade®. In a 54-week Phase 3 clinical study, SB2 showed comparable safety and equivalent efficacy to Remicade®, as evidenced in ACR20 response rate of 65.3% in the SB2 arm versus 69.2% in the Remicade® arm at week 54, fully supporting the 30-week study results of 64.1% and 66.0%, respectively. The SB2 study randomized 584 patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis despite methotrexate therapy across 73 sites in 11 countries.
