Thoughts on FDA Bs-Insulin Draft Guidance; Did Development Just Get Easier?

Yesterday, FDA issued a new draft guidance titled, “Clinical Immunogenicity Considerations for Biosimilar and Interchangeable Insulin Products.” In the draft guidance, FDA outlines its updated thinking on the need for immunogenicity studies for biosimilar insulin products. Recall, on March 23, 2020, insulin products are being reclassified as biologics, and biosimilars will be governed by the 351(k) pathway.
