What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Description

Your doctor may have prescribed Abevmy to treat one more of the following: metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), locally advanced, metastatic, or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), malignant glioma, and various other cancer types.

Its mechanism involves binding to vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), a protein on the surface of endothelial cells that stimulates blood vessel growth. By inhibiting VEGF activity, Abevmy reduces the formation of new blood vessels that nourish tumors.

Abevmy should only be administered by trained healthcare professionals. Take it exactly as prescribed by your specialist.
