The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety approved Hanwha Chemicals’ Davictrel 25mg, the biosimilar of Enbrel, on November 11.

Hanwha sent its marketing application for Davictrel in 2012, but the approval was deferred as the MOFDS asked more documents. Hanwha cancelled the application at that time and reapplied in June 2014.

Enbrel sales were 29.3 billion won last year in South Korea, but the global sales reached 9 trillion won. Hanwha is likely to try to enter the global market with its biosimilar of Enbrel.
