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.


Tecentriq (Atezolizumab) is a monoclonal antibody medication. It is primarily used to treat different types of cancer, such as non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), small cell lung cancer (SCLC), hepatocellular carcinoma, and alveolar soft part sarcoma. It is classified as a programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) blocking antibody that works by helping the immune system recognize and attack cancer cells.

  • For those who have received or are planning to receive a donor stem cell transplant (allogeneic HSCT), be aware that using Tecentriq could cause serious and potentially fatal complications.
