Collaborative development business

On the basis of our experience ranging from fundamental research to clinical development,
we are expanding collaborative development projects with other institutes and companies.

Collaborative research and development

Our collaborative research and development projects are as follows:

DR-based collaborative pharmaceutical research and development

Drug repositioning (DR) is a drug discovery strategy to discover new pharmacological effects of approved drugs for indication expansion. Our own library of approved medicines stores only drugs commercially available in Japan (approved drugs). Using this library, we promote DR collaborative research and development to discover approved drugs with the pharmacological effects that you are interested in and to confirm the effects clinically.

Collaborative research and development of DDS products

As a pioneer of drug delivery system (DDS) research, we have led growth in this area. Our DDS product, lipo-PGE1 achieved a sales peak of over 50 billion yen, and now we have various DDS technologies and promote development of new technologies. In our collaborative research and development, we develop DDS drugs to enhance the efficacy and safety of your candidate drug.

Collaborative research and development for additional indications of our products

Our PC-SOD currently under development is the only SOD product that can be administered to humans. PC-SOD products are expected to be effective for various diseases because it can remove the active oxygen species that cause many types of diseases. Meanwhile, we are working actively toward additional indications of our products such as lipo-PGE1.
