GUANGZHOU, China

Bio-Thera Solutions, Ltd., a fully-integrated pharmaceutical company, today announced that QLETLI® (格乐立®), a biosimilar to Humira® (adalimumab), is now available in China. QLETLI® (格乐立®), the first adalimumab biosimilar approved by the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA), is authorized for the treatment of three autoimmune diseases: rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and plaque psoriasis. QLETLI® (格乐立®) is Bio-Thera’s first biosimilar to receive regulatory approval and is the second biosimilar approved in China by the NMPA.

“The commercial launch of Bio-Thera’s first approved product is an enormous milestone for the company,” said Shengfeng Li, Ph.D., CEO of Bio-Thera Solutions. “It demonstrates that Bio-Thera Solutions is a fully-integrated pharmaceutical company, able to take a product developed in our labs, through the clinic, through regulatory approval and now to the market. Bio-Thera is committed to bringing additional biosimilar and innovative products to the market in China and around the world.”

QLETLI® (格乐立®) was approved based on the totality of evidence from a comprehensive data package supporting biosimilarity to adalimumab which includes analytical, nonclinical, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and clinical data. The Phase III clinical study met its primary endpoint showing no clinically meaningful differences in safety, immunogenicity and efficacy compared to adalimumab.

Bio-Thera Solutions is developing several additional proposed biosimilars, including biosimilars to Avastin® and to Actemra®/RoActemra®, which are both currently being evaluated in global Phase III clinical trials. Bio-Thera is also pursuing biosimilars to Simponi® and to Stelara®.
