Abstract

As many more biosimilars are in development, we recommend that clinical trial design be standardised. This standardisation could be agreed upon and overseen by regulatory agencies around the world. The introduction of consistency across clinical trials should increase confidence in these more affordable biopharmaceuticals, both within the healthcare community and among patients.
