  • Overview

    Throughout your career, how many brand name drugs have you seen become generic? Depending on how long you have been practicing, it could be 25, 50, or even 100. How many biologic drugs have you seen become generic? As of 2015, only one. So far, that is. Let's set up a case for why biologic drugs cannot go generic in the strictest sense of the word. After all, just as generic drugs have saved money over their brand predecessors, it makes sense that offshoots of biologic drugs contain the staggering cost of healthcare in the US.
