Ware Partner, Foley Hoag LLP (Boston, MA) American Conference Institute’s 2nd Annual Conference on CLE Credits Earn “One of the best CLEs I’ve been to in 10 years” Maryann Wiskerchen, Counsel, Eli Lilly & Co. Come to the definitive forum where all the key players in the biosimilar market – decision-makers at branded and generic pharmaceutical and biotech companies, policy experts from major industry associations, the scientists and economists who are helping to shape the pathway, and leading regulatory and patent lawyers – unite to provide you with the tools necessary to position yourself strategically in anticipation of generic biologic entry including: • Understanding the FDA’s current position on the implementation of a biosimilar pathway and strategically positioning your company to protect or increase market share • Determining what level of clinical data biosimilar applicants must provide to prove safety and efficacy • Evaluating the impact that the 12-year exclusivity period will have on competition and research and development • Assessing the financial viability of biosimilars in light of potential regulatory hurdles and forecasting potential profit margins • Developing proactive strategies and plans in preparation for the eventuality of biosimilar patent disputes Pre-conference science primer on Biologics Science 101: Understanding and Deconstructing the Complicated Scientific Principles Behind Biosimilars Post-conference master class, an In-Depth Breakdown of the Biosimilar Framework in the EU SuppoRTInG SponSoRS: LeAD SponSoR: CoCkTAIL ReCepTIon SponSoReD By: SponSoR: Register Now • 888-224-2480 • AmericanConference.com/FOB attend the one event where the industry leaders driving the business of biosimilars unite to set the standards which will shape an evolving legal and regulatory landscape he Biologics Price Competition & Innovation Act (BPCIA) was passed in March of 2010 and made the long-anticipated pathway to generic biologic products a reality at long last. However, despite the passage of this historic legislation, the FDA has yet to implement regulations to guide branded and generic companies in structuring a biologics regime. At ACI’s second-annual Biosimilars conference, the key figures who are shaping the evolving biosimilar landscape—leading policy makers, in-house representatives from branded and generic biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, and top-tier litigators and patent prosecutors—will convene to formulate solutions to the challenging questions left standing in the wake of the historic BPCIA legislation: • Meeting the heightened standard of interchangeability and proving or disproving similarity • Delineating the scope of the exclusivity provision and analyzing the potential impact of the statutory 12-year period on research, innovation and consumer access to drugs • Analyzing the complex patent resolution mechanisms outlined in the statute and proactively preparing for the intricate exchange process • Ascertaining the volume and level of safety data that will be required to prove patient safety and efficacy to facilitate approval • Determining the financial viability of biosimilars and exploring alternative pathways to approval including biobetters The major players are preparing for the inevitable—the litigation and the attacks on biosimilar IP that are sure to come With an estimated $100 billion in potential biologics sales at stake annually and a wave of patent expirations starting in 2014, there will T be a hard-fought battle to protect and increase market share. Whether you are on the branded or generic side, you cannot afford to miss this opportunity to benchmark your tactics and strategies against the industry leaders who will be the first to traverse the pathway. Devise an immediate action plan for your biosimilar prosecution and litigation strategies in light of the barriers to entry, research and development costs, and regulatory hurdles, which are balanced against an enormous potential for increased profit margins. Get the complete picture: The science, the law, the regulations and the international framework Come away with a clear understanding of the scientific aspects of biosimilars at our pre-conference primer on Biologics Science 101: Understanding and Deconstructing the Complicated Scientific Principles Behind Biosimilars. At this in-depth session, leading scientists and academics will translate the technical and scientific complexities behind generic biologics into usable data to factor and incorporate into your business plan. Finally, complement your whole conference experience with our Master Class which will provide an In-Depth Breakdown of the Biosimilar Framework in the EU at which leading practitioners on the ground will dig into the regulatory and commercial specifics of the already-launched EU biosimilar framework. Dive into the nitty-gritty details about launching biosimilars in the EU as well as best practices to implement based on the success of generic launches there. With all that is at stake, do not miss this opportunity to remain at the forefront of this pivotal growth opportunity into the long-awaited biosimilar market.

Professor and Chair Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis Northeastern University (Boston, MA) Denise M. Kettelberger, Ph.D., J.D. Special Counsel Faegre & Benson LLP (Minneapolis, MN) Gillian R. Woollett, M.A., D.Phil. Chief Scientist Engel & Novitt, LLP (Washington, DC) Understanding the minutiae and complicated science of biosimilars is paramount in formulating a biosimilar business strategy. Unlike small molecule drugs, the complex nature of biologics (most are produced in living organisms) makes it difficult to produce a highly similar copy of a reference biological product. Innovator products have already demonstrated that even minor changes in biologic manufacturing processes can result in major changes in efficacy or immunogenicity. In this in-depth and interactive primer, scientists on the front lines of research and development and thought-leaders who are guiding clients and the FDA on the relevant scientific considerations will maximize your understanding of the science, putting you in the best position to assess actual costs of biosimilar research and development and to integrate this assessment into appropriate life cycle management considerations for all biologics. Through a greater understanding of regulatory options, the session will also allow better evaluation of the value of intellectual property in terms of both regulatory exclusivity and patents. • FDA implementation of a pathway for biosimilars and interchangeable biosimilars • Challenges with specific product manufacturing processes • Switching studies - Clinical trial design and immunogenicity concerns • Understanding structure / function relationships • Biosimilar monoclonal antibodies- technical challenges in process development • Reference product selection - key differentiating principles for similarity and comparability • Relationships between PHS Act licensed products, and biologic drugs approved under FD&C Act – future changes • Why the Hatch Waxman small molecule model will work for biologics and why it won’t Registration and Continental Breakfast Co-Chairs Opening Remarks Amy E.
