Viatris CEO Talks Integration, Roadmap And Interchangeable Biosimilars

As CEO Michael Goettler provides an update on the progress made by Viatris in its first year as a combined company, he also offers Generics Bulletin hints as to the detailed strategy that will be unveiled at the firm’s upcoming investor day and explains how biosimilars – including interchangeable Semglee (insulin glargine) – and complex generics are important components of the firm’s future growth plans.

First Interchangeable Biosimilar Launched In US

Viatris and Biocon have introduced their interchangeable Semglee insulin glargine biosimilar in the US, along with an unbranded interchangeable version, marking the first ever launch of an interchangeable biosimilar. The non-interchangeable version is expected to be phased out rapidly.
