Eisai's corporate philosophy is to think about patients and their families first and to increase the benefits that health care provides to address significant unmet medical needs.
Eisai calls this the Human Health Care philosophy. As part of this, Eisai is working to enhance its corporate value in a sustainable way by strengthening various initiatives in areas such as environmental, social, and governance standards.
Eisai started business in Vietnam through a local agency in the 1990s. The company opened a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City which mainly markets the proton-pump inhibitor Pariet, the muscle relaxant Myonal, and the peripheral neuropathy treatment Methycobal.
In addition, regarding its global products in Vietnam, Eisai recently launched its antiepileptic drug Fycompa in October 2019, and obtained marketing approval for the anti-cancer agent Lenvima in June 2020 and Halaven in December last year.
Appreciating the potential of the Vietnamese market, Yuki Inoue, general director of Eisai Vietnam said, “The number of people suffering from non-communicable diseases has been increasing. In response to this health care demand, Eisai Vietnam has decided to open an official office in Vietnam in order to improve pharmaceutical distribution to the market with innovative drugs and contribute to improving the lives of patients and their families.”

In this field, Eisai has made a major contribution to supporting the prevention and treatment of next-generation dementia. Globally, Eisai is also a leader in signing partnerships with companies in the insurance, food, and financial sectors to improve the quality of life for dementia patients.
