  • FDA Biosimilar Naming Guidance and Proposed Rule The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) released draft guidance and a related proposed rule on the naming of biologic drugs and biosimilars. The draft guidance proposes that reference products and biosimilars have nonproprietary names (also called proper names in the guidance) that share a core drug substance name and, in order to better identify each product, an FDA-designated suffix that is unique for each product. This suffix would be composed of four lowercase letters that won't carry any meaning.
