Pfizer Sets The Stage For A Biosimilar Showdown Over Exclusive Contracts

Executive Summary

Pfizer filed a lawsuit against J&J over its efforts to block sales of Pfizer's biosimilar Inflectra through exclusive contracting for Remicade. The suit claims J&J coerced payers by vowing to withhold all Remicade rebates if any Inflectra is reimbursed. J&J says Pfizer has failed to show the value of Inflectra.
