Bridging the gap in your Phase I clinical studies. 

Japan’s pharmaceutical market is the second largest in the world. Japan relies on the import of pharmaceutical goods to meet the needs of the country’s population. To capitalise upon these opportunities, drug developers must comply with the strict Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) regulations. Richmond Pharmacology’s expertise can help you bridge the gap in your next Phase I clinical study.
