Dong-A Pharmaceutical continues its R&D efforts to leap forward towards becoming the industry’s premier total healthcare company.
Dong-A Pharmaceutical continues its investment and R&D efforts to leap forward towards becoming the industry’s top-line total healthcare company. In particular, with the company being spun off into several divisions on March 1, 2013, Dong-A Pharmaceutical is concentrating all its capabilities on more-specialized healthcare businesses and is conducting R&D on global-brand general products, new functional natural materials, and innovative consumer healthcare products. Furthermore, we vow to perform market-oriented R&D to develop mega-brands.

Research Activities

Dong-A Pharmaceutical R&D Division embraces its mid- and long-term vision of leaping towards becoming a global brand, beyond a domestic brand, unveiling efficacious blockbuster products and developing Dong-A brands of individually approved functional health foods. To actualize our mid- and long-term vision, under the slogan of “Maximizing our therapeutic performance through combined pharmaceutical technologies” we are conducting research to develop products that can excellently maintain our consumers’ health, prevent diseases, and treat mild-symptom diseases.

Dong-A Pharmaceutical’s research tasks include the development of consumer healthcare products (OTC, healthcare) and the development of individually approved functional health products.

[ The OTC Product Development Division ]The OTC Product Development Division is endeavoring to integrate Dong-A Socio Group’s strengths — its new-drug research capabilities and product R&D capabilities — to clinically develop its own proprietary materials with the aim of researching on OTC new drugs. To sustain the growth of the company’s valuable-brand products, the division is researching on how to bolster the company’s product capabilities (development of extension products and clinical proof of efficacy) as well as on efficacious products, with the aim of creating new markets and entering mega-markets.

[ The Healthcare Product Development Division ]The Healthcare Product Development Division is conducting R&D on the oral-care area, including the country’s no. 1 mouthwash, Garglin, and is proving the efficacy of its oral-care products through diverse efficacy evaluations and clinical trials. The division is developing not only oral-health products but other products as well that are instrumental in promoting the national health. The division is also researching on products that will enable it to enter the Chinese, U.S., and other overseas markets.

[ The Functional Health Food Development Division ]The Functional Health Food Development Division is developing differentiated products by exploring diverse-function, high-function, exclusive new materials and testing them by applying them to the human body. The division also vows to secure international-standards-compliant clinical data for the approval of its domestically developed functional health foods, to be able to enter emerging and global markets.
