|By:, SA News Editor

As expected, the European Commission (EC) approves Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and development partner Allergan's (NYSE:AGN) MVASI, a biosimilar of Roche's (OTCQX:RHHBY) Avastin. The FDA approved it in September 2017.

Two months ago, the advisory group CHMP adopted a positive opinion backing approval.

The companies are collaborating on the development and commercialization of four oncology biosimilars. Amgen has 10 in its portfolio.
