    "Drugs known as biologics have grabbed headlines over the years, both for their potential in fighting cancer and other diseases, and for their high price tag.

    Now, the FDA's approval of the first so-called "biosimilar" drug clears the way for manufacturers to make lower-cost versions of those expensive drugs, saving patients money and improving access to the medications."


    Read the article above for more information on what biosimilar drugs are, why they are important, and how they can help people.
