The CHMP’s positive opinion will now be referred to the European Commission (EC) which will review and decide on the grant of a marketing authorization for Imraldi®. If a marketing authorization is granted by the EC, Imraldi® will be commercialized in the European Union (EU) by Biogen.

“We welcome the EMA’s positive recommendation for Imraldi, which brings us a step closer to delivering a lower-cost, high-quality autoimmune treatment option to patients across Europe,” said Christopher Hansung Ko, President & CEO of Samsung Bioepis. “Through relentless process innovation and an uncompromising commitment to quality, we remain dedicated to advancing one of the industry’s strongest biosimilar pipelines, so that more patients and healthcare systems across Europe will benefit from biosimilars.”

The Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for Imraldi® was based on data derived from a randomized, double-blind 52-week Phase III study, in which 544 patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis despite methotrexate (MTX) therapy were randomized to receive either Imraldi® or the adalimumab reference product (ADL). At Week 24, the ACR20 response rate was 72.4% in the Imraldi® group versus 72.2% in the ADL group. The safety profile of Imraldi® was comparable to ADL up to Week 24. At Week 24, 254 patients receiving ADL were re-randomized in a 1:1 ratio to continue on ADL or switch to Imraldi®, and 254 patients receiving SB5 continued to receive SB5. Up to Week 52, the efficacy, safety and immunogenicity profiles remained comparable between all three treatment groups. There were no treatment emergent issues or clinically relevant immunogenicity precipitated by switching from ADL to Imraldi®.
