Biologics become part of top selling drugs

28

Dec

Biologics, also known as biopharmaceuticals have entered the list of the top 10 selling drugs, with seven of them featuring in it. They have been revolutionary in the treatment of serious illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis, cancers and diabetes.

As against conventional medicines, which are made of chemical compositions, biologics are complex molecules made of living organisms. The shift has been visible in the last ten years with rising commercial value of injectable biotech medicines. The regulatory scenario is still tough for the drugs in the US market, but their sales have bypassed sales of traditional medicines due to their contribution as high value therapies for chronic conditions like oncology.
