May 14, 2012 - PRLog -- ACI’s 3rd Annual Biosimilars conference has become a must-attend annual benchmarking forum for industry leaders- including key policy makers, in-house representative from branded and generic biopharmaceutical companies, and top-tier regulatory attorneys, patent litigators and prosecutors.  

As Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Momenta Pharmaceuticals Bruce A. Leicher states, “With the recent publication of FDA's biosimilar guidance documents and the public hearing planned for May 11, the ACI Biosimilars conference offers a timely opportunity to share perspectives and increase understanding of the new approval pathway for biosimilar development and commercialization."
