Fulphila (pegfilgrastim-jmbd), is a biosimilar to Neulasta (pegfilgrastim).

A biosimilar is a biological product that is highly similar to a biologic already approved by the FDA (known as the reference product) and has no clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety, purity and potency from the reference product. Biosimilars can provide cost effective treatment options to already approved biologics.

Fulphila and Neulasta are both used in cancer patients to boost the production of infection-fighting white blood cells and to help prevent neutropenia caused by chemotherapy.
