PAHEF Activities on Biosimilar Products and the Medical Realities in Latin America


There is a long history of adapting nature to fulfill the needs of the population by altering natural products and the environment. Biotechnology began once humans discovered the benefits of modifying living organisms, be it for agricultural, cooking, or medicinal uses. Rudimentary forms of biotechnology evolved into newer, more complex methodologies in the modification of nature. With a higher level of understanding biology and increasingly complex technology, manipulation of living organisms to increase agricultural output, reduce our impact on the environment, and prevent and combat diseases has become possible.
