Biosimilar low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWH) have been produced in the past years and are currently being marketed in China, India, Argentina and Brasil. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two biosimilar versions of enoxaparin for clinical use in any indication where the originator product had achieved approval ((1,2,3,4) ). Of note is that each originator LMWH had received regulatory approval as an individual biological medicine and large randomized clinical trials were required for each clinical indication.
