Process for New Drug Development

What is the R&D for Pharmaceuticals?

In Japan, it generally takes a long period such as ten years or more and cost it a large amount of R&D expenses more than tens of billions of Japanese yen to develop one new drug. And even with that much time and cost, the success rate of a compound being launched as a new drug is only about 1 / 30,000 (0.003%).
