Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved fewer generics in 2017 (101) compared to 2016 (118). However, 2017 also saw a large proportion of new registrations of immunotherapies and human monoclonal antibodies, while the listing of new ‘first generic’ medicines triggered a statutory 16% price reduction under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS). In addition, the agency also approved three new biosimilars.
