Despite having biosimilars of insulin glargine and etanercept that are expected to launch in the US and Europe respectively midway through this year, a biosimilar bevacizumab candidate filed in both regions, an in-development Botox rival still being considered and several other biosimilars already on the market around the world, Mylan insists that its biosimilars journey is just beginning.
