Feature: Delivering Safe, Reliable Drugs:
Chugai's Uncompromising Pursuit of Drug Safety
Chugai provides biopharmaceuticals, molecular targeted therapies, and other innovative pharmaceuticals to patients around the world. With new modes of action, they are highly effective, but their downside is that they may cause unforeseen adverse reactions or other problems. For that reason, Chugai established the Drug Safety Division, which is staffed by a team of safety experts and reports directly to top management, to create a comprehensive pharmacovigilance system that helps patients to correctly use Chugai products. With these measures, Chugai aims to promote more appropriate use of its medicines and build further trust among patients and healthcare providers.
