Samsung Bioepis will start its phase III clinical trial for the biosimilar of Humira in four hospitals as the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety gave green light.

Samsung will compare the efficacy and safety of its biosmilar with Humira. It is also conducting phase I clinical trials of the biosmilar in other countries to enter the global market.

Smasung is currently working on the biosimilars of Enbrel, Remicade and Herceptin. The phase III clinical trial of its Enbrel biosimilar is almost completed and the other trials are halfway done.

Several Korean companies are developing biosimilars, but only the two biosimilars, Ramsima and Herzuma, are approved so far.
