Generics are pharmaceutical products with identical usage, route, dosage and effects as previously approved pharmaceuticals or their effective components, or those whose usage, dosage and effects are within the same scope. In order to obtain approval for their manufacture and sale, there is no need to conduct clinical trials. One can obtain approval by fulfilling criteria for testing of stability and biological equality.
Usually, these enter the market after exclusivity periods of previously approved pharmaceuticals have ended or their patents have expired.
