London, United Kingdom, July 27, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- SMi Group have released an interview with Glenn Kazo, President and Chief Operating Officer from Prolong Pharmaceuticals, ahead of his presentation at the 8th annual industry summit on Biosimilars & Biobetters this September.
Prolong Pharmaceuticals is a privately held company with portfolio of hematology and oncology products in clinical development. With over 25 years of experience, Glenn Kazo has been very active in the advancement of Biosimilars and BioBetters, both as an industry speaker and in leading several drug development programs. Throughout his career, Glenn has continued an active consulting practice, advising biopharma clients and venture capital firms on corporate strategy and development.
With a focus on Biobetters, his presentation will explore developing the next generation anti-neuropenic factor. Neulasta is one of the most desirable targets for biosimilar development. Glen’s talk will discuss ongoing technical and market challenges to biosimilar versions of Neulasta, neutropenia prevention vs treatment; and the commercial approach to developing ANF-RhoTM.
In the run-up to the event, SMi Group caught up with Glen to discuss in industry developments and on-going challenges in Biosimilars.
“Beginning in 2012, I gave a series of talks called Why ‘BioDifferent Equals BioBetter.’ The underlying theme was that it is much easier to prove that products are different rather than to prove that products are similar. It wasn’t a popular concept – but companies are now finding out that regulators and customers hold a very high standard of ‘similar’ and an even higher standard for 'interchangeable.'”

SMi’s 8th Annual Biosimilars & Biobetters event will take place on 27th and 28th September 2017 at the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London UK.
