    “We will improve our patients’ quality of life with therapies that are of the highest quality yet affordable and always available; this is our responsibility.”

    In line with our company’s vision, our Product Development develops new medicinal products with additional benefits to patients in specific niche indications with high therapeutic needs -  also as a reliable development partner in cooperation with you.

    In this, we always focus on our customers and are open to new technologies. We continuously strive to optimise our processes, thereby increasing the agility and efficiency of our opportunities-based approach. This allows us to constantly improve our products and create added value for the good of our patients. Our focus is on indications in the therapeutic areas of oncology, haematology, urology and autoimmune diseases.

    As a medium-sized pharmaceutical company we are proud of the global focus of our Product Development which offers a wide range of knowledge and expertise.

    Our highly qualified scientists contribute their know-how early on during the search for new product opportunities and design innovative, regulation-compliant development plans, which are then implemented efficiently and with an eye on the goal.

    Find more information on our expertise in the development of new products and ways of cooperating with us as your development partner here.

    With our experience we can support you as a reliable cooperation partner to find the right solution for your unmet market needs.

    The road to an authorised, marketable product - our expertise covers all steps

    Our Product Development has a modular set-up, which means that we are comfortable working in various cooperation models with small start-ups as well as larger biotech and pharmaceutical companies. From completing the last steps of a marketing authorisation procedure to full product development from start to finish ‑ we can do it all. Our partners appreciate our commitment, the way we comprehensively contribute our expertise and experience and, not least, that cooperation with us is based on mutual trust and respect.

    Our spectrum, our expertise and know-how enable us to successfully carry out our own developments or, within the framework of a cooperation model, to contribute to finding the optimal solution for your unmet market needs for the benefit of patients.
