We have established good relationships with many doctors and accept requests related to the import of various pharmaceuticals.
Therefore, we believe that we can be a good business partner with pharmaceutical companies.
We have a track record of import agency of pharmaceuticals used in the following treatments.
Article 68 of the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law, which concerns the Quality, Efficacy, and Safety Assurance of Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices, prohibits the advertising and promotion of unapproved pharmaceuticals in Japan.
This includes the disclosure of product names, ingredient names, indications, prices, and methods of use.
The reason many Japanese physicians seek international medicines is for their patients.
In Japan, it takes longer for unapproved medicines to get approved and reach patients than in other countries.
While some patients are already being treated with medicines approved outside of Japan, they often have limited treatment options within Japan.
As a physician, it is natural to want to help patients solve their problems.
However, importing pharmaceuticals is not easy.
Medical Life Co., provides a pharmaceutical importation service in the hope of creating an environment in which doctors can focus on patient care.
Physicians use import agents due to the complicated procedures involved in importing pharmaceuticals.
In Japan, there is a system called "personal importation of pharmaceuticals" that allows physicians to import unapproved medicines from abroad for the purpose of patient treatment or research.
However, the complexity of these procedures makes it challenging for physicians to utilize this system alongside their regular duties.
In addition, there is no guarantee that the medicines will clear customs once the procedures have been completed.
Therefore, many choose to use experienced import agents like us.
