Generic Simponi

When Will Generic Simponi Be Available?

It is difficult to say for certain when Simponi will be available in generic form. Even though the regulations are changing to allow manufacturers to make generic biologics, there is still some rulemaking to be done. In addition to patent expiration issues, once it is possible to make a generic version of Simponi, a manufacturer will have to decide to do so for one to eventually become available.

Is Golimumab a Generic Simponi?

No -- golimumab is the active ingredient in Simponi but is not a generic version of it. What can be confusing is that oftentimes, the active ingredient of any drug is referred to as the "generic name."
The generic name is different from a generic version of a medicine. In order for there to be a generic version of a medicine, the original medicine must have gone off-patent and another company besides the original manufacturer must make the product.
