Our Business

Pharmaceuticals Business

The Yamakawa Pharmaceuticals Co., Ltd. founded in 1931, served as the predeccesor for our Pharmaceuticals Business. Its aspirin that was put on the market the following year became Yamakawa's main product during its creation stage, and "Yamakawa Asprin" became synonymous to the company name.
The launching of the anti-cancer drug BLEOMYCIN in 1969 served as a turning point and Nippon Kayaku gradually started to develop its business with a focus on anti-cancer drugs and cancer-related agents. In recent years, we have been furthering our efforts into the areas of biosimilar products, generic anti-cancer drugs, as well as interventional radiology (IVR) so that we can continue to provide highly necessary pharmaceuticals and medical equipment for patients along with exceptionally reliable information to the medical institutions.
Moving forward, "Speciality, Biosimilar & Generic" will continue to be a key domain. We aim to contribute to society with innovations that are backed by our technological expertise and by consistently supplying high-quality pharmaceuticals to improve the level of treatments patients receive, and to achieve more efficient medical spending.
