Principles for Business Activities.
We strive to minimize the possibility of health hazards resulting from adverse reactions by reducing the safety risks of our pharmaceuticals. In order for patients to be able to consult physicians for treatment using our pharmaceuticals with peace of mind, we collect and analyze treatment information worldwide on a daily basis during clinical trials and post-marketing surveys, whether the pharmaceuticals in question are in-house or co-developed. Our goal is to provide healthcare professionals with the timely and reliable feedback that they need to appropriately determine a balance between the benefits and risks of a particular pharmaceutical in the treatment of each and every patient.
It is absolutely essential to assure the quality, efficacy, and safety of “medicine” throughout the product lifecycle, from research and development through manufacturing and post-marketing activities. In accordance with the applicable laws, regulations, and public standards of each country in which we operate, we establish and continuously improve systems for ensuring and monitoring compliance with GxP and other guidelines so that we can maintain and operate an effective quality management system that assures the reliability of data and the quality of our pharmaceuticals. We disclose reliable information in a timely and accurate manner.
In order to safely deliver to patients pharmaceuticals that both healthcare professionals and patients can use with peace of mind, we strive to assure product quality and reduce costs at every stage of our supply chain, while concurrently building a system for the stable supply of quality pharmaceuticals through constant efforts to develop technologies and improve the relevant systems. We also improve our preparedness to take prompt and appropriate action, even in the event of unforeseen circumstances, by reinforcing the functioning of our entire supply chain and facilitating cooperation among concerned parties.
In every country where we market our pharmaceuticals, with pride and a sense of mission as an organization involved in the creation of “medicine” that has significant influence on people’s lives, in accordance with the applicable laws, regulations and trade norms, we provide information to ensure the proper use of our pharmaceuticals as well as important product information for patients and the medical fraternity. While monitoring healthcare conditions and ever-changing patient needs in each country and region, we utilize appropriate measures to provide, collect, and communicate pharmaceutical information, both accurately and in a timely manner.
