This revised draft guidance addresses questions firms may have when developing FDA-regulated promotional labeling and advertisements (promotional communications) for prescription reference products licensed under section 351(a) of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) (42 U.S.C. 262(a)) and prescription biosimilar products, including interchangeable biosimilar products, licensed under section 351(k) of the PHS Act (42 U.S.C. 262(k)). This guidance does not make any recommendations for nonprescription products. Unless otherwise specified, the term biosimilar product as used in this guidance refers to a product that is licensed under section 351(k) of the PHS Act as biosimilar to or biosimilar to and interchangeable with a reference product. This guidance discusses considerations for presenting data and information about reference products or biosimilar products in these promotional communications to help ensure that they are accurate, truthful, and non-misleading.
