Biocon subsidiary launches biosimilar for Humira in US
Biocon Biologics Ltd (BBL), a subsidiary of Biocon, has launched HULIO (adalimumab-fkjp) injection, a biosimilar to Humira (adalimumab), in the United States.
The drug is a monoclonal antibody used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, plaque psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, uveitis, and juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

HULIO is available at two price points: 5% below the current Humira list price and approximately 85% below the current Humira list price.

HULIO meets the rigorous biosimilar approval standards of the FDA. Like Humira, HULIO is citrate-free and is made without natural rubber latex.

Biocon Biologics also offers HULIO360, a robust patient support program, which includes benefits verification and prior authorization support, copay assistance, a bridge program for eligible patients, and at-home nurse injection training.

"The launch of HULIO, our biosimilar adalimumab, in the United States is an important milestone for Biocon Biologics as it expands our well-known biosimilar product offering to patients in the United States. This launch builds on our strong presence in oncology and diabetes and re-affirms our commitment to enabling affordable access to biologics,” said Shreehas Tambe, CEO & managing director, Biocon Biologics.

"Biocon Biologics is pleased to make HULIO, a patient-friendly, 2-click, prefilled pen available in the United States for patients with certain inflammatory diseases. There are no buttons to push. Patients remove the cap and push the device against their skin to trigger their injection. Designed and built with patients in mind, healthcare professionals and patients don't have to miss a beat with HULIO; they simply, 'Click, Click, Go,'" said Mathew Erick, chief commercial officer of advanced markets, Biocon Biologics.

Biocon Biologics is a fully integrated, global biosimilars company committed to transforming healthcare and transforming lives by enabling affordable access to high quality biosimilars for millions of patients worldwide.

The scrip fell 0.81% to settle at Rs 263.40 on Monday, 3 July 2023.
