Understanding Biosimilars (NAPS)--Perhaps your doctor has talked to you about biosimilar medicines or you have heard or read about them in the news--but what are biosimilars? There is a great deal of complexity and confusion about what they are, how they are made and why they should matter to patients. A new educational website, Bio- similars Clarified, provides support to patients, caregivers and the health care community by offering straightforward information about biosimilar medicines. Knowing the Basics Many of today's important medica- tions are biologic medicines, which are used to treat serious medical conditions. Biologics are made from living organ- isms such as human or animal cells, and microorganisms like bacteria or yeast. Biosimilars are a type of biologi- cal product that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) because they are highly similar to an already FDA-approved biological prod- uct, known as the originator biologic or reference product, and have been shown to have no clinically meaningful differ- ences in terms of the safety, purity and potency of the product. Biosimilars Are Not Generics Generic drugs are chemical copies of certain prescription medicines that are made by using the same formula. The living cells used to make biolog- ics can cause tiny differences between batches of the medicine each time it's made. Biosimilars go through many tests to check that they act in a similar way in the body. How Are Biosimilars Similar to Originators? Structure--the shape of the molecule is similar Function--what the medicine does is similar Clinical Effect--how the medicine ] t*~t Originality does not consist in saying what saying exactly what you think yourself. no one has ever said before, but in --James Stephens Can t list and wait.

Hinton Lions Club Donation By Ann Lipscomb The Hinton Lions Club has donated a picnic table to Summers Middle School. Shown are Jason McClung and Blake Vandal who moved the table into place on the old playground at Summers Middle. Built by the Building Construction Class at Summers County High School under the direction of Mr. Thomas, the picnic table is one of two that will be provided. Unfortunately, the class was unable to finish the second table prior to school ending. The materials were provided by Hinton Lions Club.
