Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN)  announced AMJEVITA™ (adalimumab-atto), a biosimilar to Humira®* (adalimumab), is now available in the United States. AMJEVITA was the first biosimilar to Humira approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in 2016.2,3

"With today's announcement, AMJEVITA is the first U.S. biosimilar to Humira®, a medicine used by more than a million patients living with certain serious inflammatory diseases," said Murdo Gordon, executive vice president of Global Commercial Operations at Amgen. "With our track record of developing and manufacturing biologics and decades of experience in inflammation, Amgen is uniquely equipped to supply this biosimilar medicine while reducing costs."

"Biosimilars are extensively studied, FDA-approved treatments that have the potential to reduce costs to the healthcare system," said Steven Taylor, president and chief executive officer at the Arthritis Foundation. "AMJEVITA provides another treatment option for patients and their doctors."

AMJEVITA (40 mg) is available at a list price (Wholesale Acquisition Cost) 55% below the current Humira list price. AMJEVITA is also available at a list price 5% below the current Humira list price. Amgen's goal is to provide broad access for patients by offering two options to health plans and pharmacy benefit managers. More information on Amgen's approach to responsible pricing is on the company's website.
