The Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation is a new entity from the merger of Tanabe Seiyaku Co., Ltd. and the Mitsubishi Pharma Corporation in October 1, 2007.
In 2008, several domestic clinical trials were in the planning stages at the Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation and the bulk of the documentation processing was mainly handled in-house by company employees who were already overwhelmed by the increasing workload and the company’s inability to allocate sufficient manpower for this project.
In addition, the company was then in the midst of a merger, and developing standard operating procedures for external applications for medical facilities could not be implemented. To resolve these issues immediately, they engaged Fuji Xerox Clinical Support Center due to our successful partnerships with numerous pharmaceutical corporations.
