Sagent and Biosimilars

With a distinct focus on patients and safety, and as a leader in generic injectable products, Sagent is well positioned to enter the biosimilar market, with an eye for improving care in a potentially cost-efficient manner.

Our phase III RADIANCE (NCT02990806) clinical trial is underway to demonstrate that Sagent’s infliximab biosimilar is interchangeable with the United States–licensed Remicade®1 (infliximab) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis not adequately responding to methotrexate.2 Sagent hopes to introduce the first interchangeable biosimilar into the United States market in the near future.
