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 Avastin), and has no clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety and effectiveness.
Both Mvasi and Avastin are indicated for multiple types of cancer, including metastatic colorectal cancer, non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer, brain cancer (glioblastoma), metastatic renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer) and cervical cancers.
