Imraldi sets pace on German price cuts

Executive Summary

Biogen’s Imraldi (adalimumab) biosimilar has entered the German market with a list price just over 40% lower than the cost of the reference brand, AbbVie’s Humira, according to the association of statutory health insurance doctors for the North Rhine region, the KVNO. And while Amgen’s Amgevita and Sandoz/Hexal’s Hyrimoz currently offer more modest list-price discounts to Humira, the KVNO says both suppliers of adalimumab biosimilars have announced price cuts that will come into effect from 15 November.
