Pfizer Inc. (PFE) on Monday said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Abrilada, its biosimilar to AbbVie Inc.'s (ABBV) blockbuster Humira, for multiple inflammatory conditions.

The New York drug maker said the approval covers the treatment of certain patients with rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, adult Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and plaque psoriasis.

Pfizer said it currently plans to launch Abrilada in the U.S. in 2023 based on the terms of its 2018 licensing agreement with AbbVie.

Biosimilars are near-copies of biologic drugs, such as Humira, that are made from living cells and are analogous to generic copies of traditional pill-form medicines.

Humira, used to treat diseases from rheumatoid arthritis to gut disorders, is the world's biggest-selling drug.
