The CHMP’s positive opinion will now be referred to the European Commission (EC) which will decide on the grant of a marketing authorization for ONTRUZANT®. If a marketing authorization is granted by the EC, ONTRUZANT® will be commercialized in the European Union by MSD, which is known as Merck in the United States and Canada.

“We are proud to see ONTRUZANT become the first trastuzumab biosimilar recommended for approval in Europe, where breast cancer remains the most common form of cancer affecting women. If approved, we hope ONTRUZANT will play an important role expanding patient access to trastuzumab across the region,” 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 cancer patients and healthcare systems across Europe will benefit from biosimilars.”
