Daiichi Sankyo, Shionogi Profits Increase; Dainippon Sumitomo Expands In China - Japanese Pharma Earnings Roundup (Part 2 Of 2)

This article was originally published in PharmAsia News

Executive Summary

Major Japanese pharma face many of the same problems as major Western pharma, including patent cliffs and growth slowdown in traditional markets. Japanese pharma, on the other hand, have been slower to establish themselves in emerging markets. But that may soon be changing, as can be seen in this Japanese pharma earnings roundup, a periodic feature in PharmAsia News. Part one of this roundup looked at the approaches Astellas and Eisai are taking to deal with major patent losses (PharmAsia News, May 25, 2010).
