Another pillar of Linical’s business, in addition to the CRO business, is Contract Medical Affairs. This involves clinical research promotion tasks, which generate “Evidence-Based Medicine” relating to pharmaceutical products after manufacture and sale, and Medical Science Liaison tasks. Although clinical research can make a very substantial contribution to society by establishing and differentiating new treatment methods — the kind of work that cannot be done at the stage of clinical development — the quantity and quality of such research lags behind that in Europe and the USA. In light of this situation, we are working hard to build a system of contract medical affairs, with the aim of creating the “First Japanese-Headquartered Global Standard” that we can be internationally proud of.
