Biologics are effective and have a good safety profile in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. Biosimilars have recently become available as treatment option. They are biological agents that are highly similar to the original biologic compound in their structure, biological activity, efficacy and safety. This position paper summarises current knowledge on biosimilars and presents its statements on regulatory issues and clinical situation in order to provide clinicians adequate information for them to reach informed and appropriate shared decision-making with their patients.
