A Vision for the Global Generic and Biosimilar Medicines Industry

May 22, 2021

A Vision for the Global Generic and Biosimilar Medicines Industry
One of the key roles of the generic and biosimilar medicines industry is specifically to promote
the widest possible access to affordable medicines with high quality, safety, and efficacy for
patients globally by introducing competition into the markets. Despite the many hurdles, the
generic medicines companies have clearly lived up to the challenges posed by the pandemic
as it is an industry that is quick to adapt and agile in manufacturing scale-up. During the
outbreak of COVID-19, this industry was providing most of the medicines needed in Intensive
Care Units to ventilate critically ill COVID patients. It is also providing most of the quality
medicines dispensed around the world, especially for increasingly prevalent chronic diseases
and is therefore a strong contributor to health outcomes globally.

Alnylam Pharmaceuticals

We are developing an innovative, entirely new class of medicines called “RNAi therapeutics” to treat rare genetic, cardio metabolic, acute hepatic infectious and central nervous system (CNS) diseases. Alnylam was founded in 2002 based on a Nobel Prize-winning breakthrough in biology – the discovery of RNA interference (RNAi), and a bold vision that this discovery could be used to silence disease-causing genes upstream of today’s medicines. We are relentless in our pursuit of new treatments because we believe that RNAi therapeutics can be used to treat many diseases for which treatment options do not exist or are inadequate. Overall, we believe that patients shouldn’t have to wait for hope.
