Otsuka's Global TB Programme

X

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Company’s (OPC) global tuberculosis programme exemplifies the company’s creative ingenuity and patient-centred approach. We have worked relentlessly for more than 40 years to find a treatment option for patients suffering from multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). Remaining focused on this dream, European regulatory approval for a novel compound was granted in April 2014.
