The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is shining the spotlight on biosimilars and other interchangeable products in a new five-part video series published on YouTube.

Featuring FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb and Director of OND Therapeutics Biologics and Biosimilars Staff Leah Christl, the first video focuses on the potential biosimilars have to boost treatment options, create more access to life-saving treatments and even trim health costs.
