Overview of pharmaceutical business
Our pharmaceutical business has a mission to deliver innovative drugs safely and securely to patients in the shortest time possible, safely and securely. As this business has a direct impact on human health and life, we not only comply with strict laws, regulations, and industry codes, but are also guided by strong sense of ethics and responsibility. This is particularly the case in areas such as clinical trials and the promotion of drugs, as well as animal testing, and the management of chemical substances. While JT focuses on R&D, our pharmaceutical subsidiary, Torii Pharmaceutical, primarily carries out production and promotion of drugs in Japan. Outside Japan, where we do not have a sales function, we license drugs to other pharmaceutical manufacturers and do not have a sales function.
