Abstract

Biosimilar monoclonal antibodies are now being accepted in clinical practice by IBD specialists. However, switching patients already undergoing originator biologic treatment to biosimilars has been debated due to lack of controlled studies. The NOR-SWITCH study now provides novel clinical evidence in switching from originator to biosimilar in patients with IBD.
