The Biologics Prescribers Collaborative aims to ensure that sound policies are in place to promote the safest possible use of all biologics, including biosimilars, for all patients.

About Us

As groups representing physicians who regularly prescribe biologics, we have a unique and important perspective about the use of these medicines. While biosimilars hold tremendous promise to increase access and affordability of these advanced medicines, their availability will increase the complexity of the treatment landscape. As such, the Biologics Prescribers Collaborative aims to ensure that sound policies are in place to promote the safest possible use of all biologics, including biosimilars, for all patients.

BPC Statement on FDA’s “Labeling for Biosimilar Products” Draft Guidance
