Biosimilar Bevacizumab (Biocon)
Drug Names(s): Biosimilar Avastin
Biocon's compound is a biosimilar to the antibody drug Avastin.
The antibody inhibits angiogenesis by binding to vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Inhibiting VEGF protein function leads to diminished blood vessel formation such that tumors tend to be deprived of nourishing blood flow needed for their growth and metastasis. On the other hand, VEGF inhibition has been associated with adversities of both clotting and bleeding related to its actions at the level of blood vessel channel-lining cells.
