The interpolation results are typical, while the poor extrapolation results shown by the bottom subplots are not surprising; empirical models cannot extrapolate.
The medical sciences community and drug regulatory authorities around the world have not yet come to a consensus on the extrapolation of biosimilar indications.
Despite this theoretical disagreement, I have no quarrel with most of Schmeink's observations on the social influence of new biotechnologies, and on how science fictional extrapolation allows us to comprehend this.
Extrapolations from this paper are aided by a particularly clear presentation of the epidemiological and diagnostic costs and factors used in the models.
The overall thrust of the extrapolation issue was that if biosimilarity to Remicade was proven by a range of preclinical and clinical testing, and if safety and efficacy similar to Remicade was shown in trials that enrolled only patients with rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis, then the safety and efficacy previously proven for Remicade for the other indications could be reasonably extrapolated to apply to CT-P13 also, even though CT-P13 was never tested on patients with those conditions.
