Follow-On Biologics Workshop:

Impact of Recent Legislative and Regulatory Naming Proposals on Competition

The  Federal Trade Commission announces it will hold a workshop to explore  competition issues involving biologic medicines and follow-on biologics. As  described in the Federal Register Notice, the workshop will focus on a few key  issues, inter alia:

  • The potential impact of state regulations affecting competition.
  • How regulations, if necessary, might be structured to facilitate competition  while still protecting patient health and safety.
  •   How naming may affect competition.
  • The experience of other countries with follow-on biologic competition.

The  Federal Register Notice poses a series of questions about which the FTC seeks  public comment. The FTC will take these comments into account in its  examination of these topics.
