“In April 2008 the pharmaceutical affairs law was revised to allow third party vendors to perform direct-to-site distribution. Prior to this, pharmaceutical companies were required to hand-carry all clinical samples to clinical sites. Fisher Clinical Services K.K. opened its state-of-the-art GMP facility in 2010 to serve multinational pharmaceutical companies wishing to include Japan in their global clinical trial strategies. Today, Fisher Clinical Services K.K. also supports Japanese pharmaceutical and biotech companies conducting clinical research globally.
