The company has an international marketing network, including Japan and 13 overseas bases in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. From these bases, the company markets its original products, such as the anti-prostatic cancer agent leuprolide acetate (marketed as Lupron Depot, Enantone, Prostap, and Leuplin), the anti-peptic ulcer agent lansoprazole (marketed as Prevacid, Ogast, Takepron, and other names), the anti-hypertensive agent candesartan cilexetil (marketed as Blopress, Kenzen, and Amias), and the anti-diabetic agent pioglitazone hydrochloride (marketed as Actos). Segments The company operates its business in two categories, Pharmaceutical business and Other businesses. The Pharmaceutical business represents the ethical drug business and healthcare business. Other businesses include business activities involving the production and marketing of a range of products, including vitamin bulks, test reagents & clinical diagnostics, photographic chemicals, and inorganic chemicals. Products Candesartan Cilexetil Candesartan cilexetil is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) that is used in hypertension treatment. Its once-daily dosing provides patients with a mild anti-hypertensive action. In addition, candesartan cilexetil is also applied for the treatment of chronic heart failure.
