Porton Biopharma limited (PBL) is working with Ohara Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. who has today submitted a New Drug Application for Erwinase® in Japan. The submission was specifically timed because the 17th December is considered to be “a lucky day” in the Japanese Rokuyo calendar and is known as Taian, 大安 . This is an auspicious good luck day for all concerned and is particularly good for wedding ceremonies and starting new business ventures, hence why it was chosen.
Developing links with a range of academic institutions, industry professionals and the local community is a key component of PBL’s engagement and marketing strategy. This will enable us to keep up to date with latest research and innovative thinking, provide cross-linkages with academic and industry partners, and also develop potential career paths to enhance our workforce planning.
