On January 8, 2014, Johnson & Johnson's subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies reported that it has submitted a Citizen Petition to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding naming of biosimilars.

According to the Company, the petition states that distinguishable names are essential for enhancing patient safety and to ensure effective pharmacovigilance. Commenting on the update, Jay P. Siegel, M.D., Chief Biotechnology Officer and Head, Scientific Strategy and Policy at Johnson & Johnson, stated, "Ensuring biosimilars bear distinguishable names is of critical importance for patient safety. Names that are similar but not the same will appropriately reflect the legal and scientific reality that biosimilars are similar to but not the same as their reference products or other biosimilars."
