Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE:TEVA) stock is getting a boost on Monday after a partner company received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This approval allows for Alvotech’s (NASDAQ:ALVO) SIMLANDI injection to be used as an interchangeable biosimilar to Humira. That’s a massive win for investors in TEVA stock, as Humira was one of the biggest pharmaceutical products of 2023 with $12.2 billion in sales.

Teva Pharmaceutical is a strategic parner of Alvotech. This has it exclusively handling the U.S. commercialization of SIMLANDI. That has it planning the imminent launch of the SIMLANDI injection in the U.S. with interchangeability status.

Dr. Eric Hughes, Executive Vice President of Global R&D and Chief Medical Officer of Teva Pharmaceutical, said the following about the news:

“The approval of SIMLANDI marks the first high-concentration, citrate-free biosimilar to Humira with IC status […] This approval marks an important milestone for Teva and Alvotech’s partnership to collaborate on seven biosimilars and expand the availability, access, and uptake of biosimilars in the U.S.”

How This Affects TEVA and ALVO Stock

TEVA stock is up 3.8% as of Monday morning with some 2.4 million shares traded. That’s still well below its daily average trading volume of about 10.6 million shares.
