A ‘Biopharmaceutical’ is any pharmaceutical drug product that is manufactured by biotechnology methods and is extracted from or made using biological sources, usually living organisms or their active components. These type of Biopharmaceuticals are produced or manufactured using biological processes that involves a recombinant DNA. This may include components that are almost similar or identical to the body’s own key signaling proteins or using custom-designed antibodies that are similar to the antibodies used in the human immune system or making fusion protein such as receptor constructs that are based on the natural receptor linked to the immunoglobulin frame.

The biopharmaceutical global market is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Initially, when a pharma company manufactures a biopharmaceutical product, it is protected by strict patents. However, as the patents expire, several copies of these biopharmaceutical products as a replica product enter the market that have been made by companies other than the original one. Such similar biopharmaceutical products are known as ‘biosimilars’.

However, you must understand that it is not possible to make an exact replica of a biopharmaceutical product as they have been extracted from living organisms or using molecules that are manufactured under stringent conditions.
