  • Biosimilar Hyrimoz® (adalimumab) citrate-free high-concentration formulation (HCF) indicated for all conditions of reference medicine Humira®*
  • Hyrimoz® HCF to launch progressively across Europe
  • Hyrimoz® HCF strengthens well-established Sandoz biosimilar immunology portfolio in Europe

Basel, November 21, 2023 – Sandoz, the global leader in generic and biosimilar medicines, today announces the launch of Hyrimoz® (adalimumab) citrate-free high concentration formulation (HCF; 100 mg/mL) in Europe. The medicine will become available to patients progressively across European markets, starting today.

Hyrimoz® HCF, like the currently available 50mg/mL version of Hyrimoz®, is indicated for all conditions covered by the reference medicine*: rheumatic diseases, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, plaque psoriasis, uveitis and hidradenitis suppurativa.1

Rebecca Guntern, President Europe Sandoz said: “People living with chronic inflammatory conditions can experience debilitating effects on daily life. The launch of Hyrimoz® HCF in Europe is a key milestone in offering an additional treatment option to those that need it and showcases our unwavering commitment to expanding access to high-quality medicines.”

Hyrimoz® citrate-free HCF is an updated formulation (100 mg/mL) to the currently available Hyrimoz® 50 mg/mL and offers a 50 percent reduction in injection volume, thereby potentially decreasing the number of injections required for patients who need 80 mg/mL or higher dosing. The HCF formulation is administered with the familiar Hyrimoz® SensoReady® pen, aiming for an enhanced yet familiar patient experience.

The launch of Hyrimoz ® HCF strengthens the Sandoz biosimilar portfolio in immunology, including Erelzi® (biosimilar etanercept), Zessly® (biosimilar infliximab) and Rixathon® (biosimilar rituximab, including rheumatoid arthritis indication). Hyrimoz® citrate-free HCF (adalimumab-adaz) launched in the US in July 2023.

Sandoz is committed to helping millions of patients access critical and potentially life-changing biologic medicines sustainably and affordably across a range of areas including immunology, oncology, supportive care, and endocrinology. It has a leading global portfolio with eight marketed biosimilars and a further 25 assets in various stages of development. Since launching the first biosimilar in Europe in 2006, Sandoz has helped to create early and expanded patient access to life-altering medicines while increasing healthcare savings and creating competition that fuels further innovation.
