Regulatory Affairs


Entrepreneurial Spirit, Rooted in Tradition. At Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Development America, we can tout a storied reputation more than 300 years in the making. Our parent company, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation (MTPC), is a research-driven pharmaceutical company with global reach – and one of Japan’s oldest and most respected companies.


Relatively new to the U.S. market, the innovative compounds of the Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Group have already enjoyed commercial success under the brand labels of our U.S. partners. In this next phase of development, we plan to bring exciting new compounds to market under our own MT Pharma America label. We’re currently building a new commercial organization and expanding our other functions to support this strategy.
