About EPIRUS

EPIRUS is building a global biosimilar enterprise to improve patient access to important medicines. EPIRUS’ pipeline of biosimilar product candidates includes BOW015 (infliximab), BOW050 (adalimumab), and BOW030 (bevacizumab). The reference products for these product candidates – Remicade®, Humira®, and Avastin®, respectively – together generated $26.2 billion in global sales in 2013.

The company’s strategy for commercial success relies on targeted approaches for diverse global markets.

For emerging markets with accessible regulatory frameworks for biosimilars, EPIRUS develops partnerships with local companies to accelerate regulatory approval and commercialize its products.

For high-growth global markets where local manufacturing confers strategic and operational advantages, EPIRUS intends to use its SCALE™ platform to deliver an “In Market, For Market™” manufacturing solution with local partners.

For large markets with an established biosimilar regulatory framework, such as Europe, EPIRUS plans to commercialize its products using a combination of direct sales and local distributors.
