CRANBURY, N.J.(BUSINESS WIRE) Physicians Education Resource, LLC (PER), the leading resource for oncology and hematology continuing medical education, will produce its first livestream European webcast, Advent of Oncology Monoclonal Antibody Biosimilars A European Perspective on October 27, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. GMT.

Rugo, MD, professor of medicine, director, Breast Oncology and Clinical Trials Education, University of California San Francisco, Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Giuseppe Curigliano, MD, PhD, chair, Division of Early Drug Development at the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, Italy.

We are very excited to launch this new virtual webcast meeting to a European audience. We are going to film it in our own state-of-the-art studio that allows us to broadcast live, in real-time, to Europe. We worked with Dr. Hope Rugo to carefully select faculty that are experts in the space and can share a collaborative opinion on the state of biosimilars and its impact on treating cancer in Europe, said Phil Talamo, president of PER.

There will be discussions throughout the webinar about the 20 biosimilars approved by the European Medicines Agency. The webinar is designed to educate European pharmacists and physicians about the advantages of biosimilars in terms of their potential to reduce the acquisition cost of cancer drugs, thereby increasing affordability and patient access. Focus will be on the importance of analytical studies to the development and regulatory approval of biosimilars, the concepts of immunogenicity and extrapolation of indications based on evaluation of the totality of the evidence and mechanism of action rationale, and the potential risks related the suboptimal use of biosimilars and strategies.
