BASEL, Switzerland, and BERLIN, Germany, November 03, 2022 / B3C newswire / -- MiGenTra, a Berlin-based biopharmaceutical company, presented insights on the world of biosimilars at the Festival of Biologics in Basel, Switzerland. Franziska Werner, Project Leader of Biopharmaceutical Product Development, shared MiGenTra's holistic approach in supporting transformational healthcare change in Africa.

The African continent is disproportionately burdened by disease and is lacking adequate access to lifesaving medicines. With growing economies, rising life expectancies, fast urbanization, and increasing rates of non-communicable diseases, societies are changing rapidly. Fragile healthcare systems are struggling to respond to these drivers of transformation.

Biosimilars, biologic medicines with same safety and efficacy as the approved reference biological products are transforming the way patients are treated around the world. They offer doctors with cost-effective ways to treat a wide range of diseases, from autoimmune disorders to cancer. MiGenTra is developing a broad range of such affordable, high-quality biosimilars, to expand access to these much needed therapies across Africa and the Middle East.

The Festival of Biologics is taking place from November 2-4 at the Congress Centre in Basel, Switzerland. It brings the life sciences community together to spark discussion about biologics, from start to finish.
