    STAT SPEAKS: Colloquium on the Statistical Sciences

    Abstract: Biological product or biologics are large, complex molecules which are used for the prevention or treatment of a disease. A biosimilar is a biologic that has been developed and approved as a comparable version of another biologic that is already available in the market. Biosimilars can be sold once the patents of their originators have expired. In this study, we wish to answer the question of whether the originator (or reference product) and biologics (test products) are comparable. The study proposes a statistical test to determine whether the test quality range overlaps sufficiently with that of the reference product. Under a parametric framework, the methodology is developed using fiducial inference, which has recently made a resurgence in mainstream statistical research under the label of generalized inference. Fiducial quantities are proposed for the unknown parameters. This study aims to address the lack of sound statistical tests for comparability in the literature.
