The role of biosimilars in oncology
By 2030, the total spending for cancer care in the U.S. is projected to be around $246 billion. As cancer care spending continues to grow, so does patient cost-sharing.1 A 2017 report found that the average per-patient out-of-pocket costs for the first year following a cancer diagnosis were between $3,600 and $5,500 depending on cancer type, treatment required and insurance coverage.2
In their 2018 statement on biosimilars, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) acknowledged that biosimilars will play an important role in the future care of patients with cancer and will improve access to medicines.3 The growing availability of oncology biosimilars could help to provide more treatment options, increase access to life-saving medicines and potentially lower treatment costs for both patients and payers.4
As of May 2022, there are 36 FDA-approved biosimilar products in the U.S., many of which are utilized in oncology or supportive care for patients with cancer.5,6 With increased experience and adoption of oncology biosimilar products, the substantial savings versus the reference products will also continue to increase.7
Fresenius Kabi oncology products are used in many different cancer types including:
