Get Up to Speed on the Fastest Growing Pharmaceutical Innovation with the Only Guide

Written for Pharmacists

Among the most anticipated and discussed segments of the pharmaceutical market, biosimilars, are finally beginning to exert a greater impact on practice.

But though much has been written about the manufacture and financial benefits of biosimilars, there is little to no practical guidance for pharmacists, directors of pharmacy, and clinicians. And because biosimilars are not identical copies of their biologic reference products, many healthcare professionals have questions and concerns about this new class of therapeutics.


To meet the growing need for information, ASHP has published Biosimilars and Biologics: Implementation and Monitoring in a Healthcare Setting. This authoritative, evidence-based resource provides an in-depth perspective on all areas related to these innovative drugs, including:

  • Legislative/regulatory issues, including the biosimilars act and anticipated FDA guidelines
  • The safety, efficacy, and interchangeability of biologics
  • The science and analytical chemistry associated with the manufacture of biologics
  • Needed pharmacovigilance and adverse effect reporting systems
  • The Financial impacts (cost/reimbursement)
  • Formulary management
