Pursuing higher quality pharmaceuticals by combining group strengths
In 2002, Taiho Pharmaceutical established the U.S. subsidiary Taiho Oncology, Inc., to provide direct management of research and development programs for obtaining marketing approval of anticancer drugs primarily in the U.S. and European markets. The selected professional team works together with medical professionals and organizations in the U.S. and Europe, while cooperating with Taiho Pharmaceutical staff in Japan, to advance the global development of new drugs that can contribute to cancer treatment. LONSURF, an anticancer drug, became Taihoʼs first product in North America when it was approved by the US FDA in September 2015. Taiho commercially launched LONSURF under its own sales structure in October 2015. In Europe, Taiho's French partner Servier obtained approval for LONSURF in April 2016 from the European Commission (EC) and has begun to launch the product in European countries.
