LG Life Sciences plans to conduct a phase III clinical trial for LBEC0101 its biosimilar of Enbrel as the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety approved LG’s protocol on December 23.

LG started working on LBEC0101 in 2010. It failed the phase I clinical trial at first, so it conducted the same trial again two years later in 2012 and completed it finally.

Now it will compare LBEC0101 with Enbrel when co-administered with methotrexate. The clinical trial will be conducted in Seoul National University Medical Center, South Korea and a medical center in Japan.

LG expects it will be able to commercialize LBEC0101 in 2-3 years. Samsung and Daewoong are also developing their biosimilar of Enbrel and Hanwha recently got marketing approval for its biosimilar.
