What is the difference between Ogivri and Herceptin?
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Sep 16, 2019.
A biosimilar is a biological product that is FDA-approved and highly similar to a biologic already FDA-approved with no clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety and effectiveness from the reference product.
Ogivri has not been approved as an interchangeable biosimilar, meaning the pharmacist cannot substitute Ogivri for Herceptin without consulting the prescriber. Note that pharmacy laws and practices vary from state to state.
