PF-06410293 (Amsparity/Abrilada) is a biosimilar of the anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α antibody adalimumab. It is approved for use in all indications for which adalimumab is approved, including inflammatory joint diseases (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis), uveitis, psoriasis and Crohn’s disease. PF-06410293 has similar physicochemical and pharmacodynamic properties to those of EU- and US-sourced reference adalimumab, and the pharmacokinetic similarity of the agents is supported. PF-06410293 demonstrated therapeutic equivalence to EU-sourced reference adalimumab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and was generally well tolerated in this population. The tolerability, efficacy, safety and immunogenicity profiles of PF-06410293 were similar to those of EU-sourced reference adalimumab, and switching from reference adalimumab to PF-06410293 appeared to have no impact on safety or efficacy. The role of adalimumab in the management of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases is well established and PF-06410293 provides an effective biosimilar alternative for patients requiring adalimumab therapy.
