Research and Development Activities
Unbounded creativity and a spirit of inquiry,from experts for new drug products of tomorrow.
At Takata Seiyaku, we research and develop original generic drug
Generic drugs are pharmaceutical products containing the same quantities of active ingredients as new drugs.
Administered in a manner and dosage identical to that of existing drug products, generics demonstrate the same efficacy and results, and normally are placed on the market following the new drug re-examination period and expiration of the patent. With national health care expenditures anticipated to increase with the full-fledged aging of Japan’s society, low-priced generic drugs are expected to contribute to reducing the public financial burden.
Generic drugs also play a major role in resolving problems such as tastes and tablet sizes and shapes, which make products easier for patients to take, while providing the same effectiveness and safety as new drugs.
Takata Seiyaku has solved a number of problems faced by patients and medical professionals, including bitter taste, large tablet size and difficulty in handling by physicians, pharmacists and nurses. Utilizing experience and knowledge accumulated over our long history, plus the latest in technology, we conduct product research aimed at creating original value-added generics.
Drugs such as dry syrup for children and kit preparations for intravenous infusion are typical of the products we have created to contribute to medical care.
At Takata Seiyaku we will continue our challenge, because we believe new pharmaceutical products created through such drug research will contribute to the future of human health.
