Cyltezo (adalimumab-adbm) is a biosimilar to Humira (adalimumab).

Cyltezo is not an interchangeable product with Humira; the physician must write a prescription specifically for Cyltezo.

A biosimilar, according to the FDA, is a biological product that is highly similar to an FDA-approved biological product, known as a reference product (in this case Humira), and has no clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety and effectiveness.
