Commitment to Transparency and Integrity
For more than 230 years, the Takeda brand has embodied the values of fairness, honesty, and most importantly, integrity. Known as “Takeda-ism,” these core values serve as guiding principles in our pursuit to promote better health and brighter futures for our patients through innovative medicines.
Today, Takeda continues our tradition of integrity by prioritizing clinical research transparency and making clinical research information and results available to the public.
