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 collaborative research announcement (research grants supplied)

LTT Bio- Pharma intends to make the most of its research material (approved drug library), DR expertise, and research funding for effective application of your basic research findings to clinical use. Therefore, we are seeking proposals for joint DR screening with us from Japanese researchers.

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). We are seeking collaborative DR-based research and development proposals that approved drugs having the pharmacological effects you are interested in are discovered using our approved drug library, and the effects will be examined in clinical practice.

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. We are seeking collaborative research and development proposals for DDS products for improvement of the safety and efficacy of your candidate drugs.

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. In addition, we will seek collaborative research and development proposals for additional indications for pharmaceutical products developed by LTT Bio- Pharma.
