Teijin's pharmaceuticals and home health care operations date back nearly 30 years. Since then, the Company has pursued independent research as well as cooperative programs with leading organizations in Japan and abroad to strengthen its specialized capabilities. In 1982, Teijin became the first company in Japan to offer home oxygen therapy (HOT). The Company has also brought to market more than 10 innovative pharmaceuticals in three therapeutic areas: respiratory ailments, cardiovascular metabolism disorders, and bone calcium metabolism disorders. These include Bonalon®, an osteoporosis drug; Venilon®, an intravenous immunoglobulin preparation for treating severe infectious diseases; and Mucosolvan®, a mucolubricant used as an expectorant. In 1996, Teijin established its own nationwide direct sales network for pharmaceuticals. The Company has created a nationwide home health care network of six sales companies and 80 offices staffed by dedicated employees, through which it provides aroundthe-clock HOT equipment rental services and other services, contributing to a better quality

of life for patients with respiratory disorders. Through these offices, Teijin has also started offering rentals of equipment for diagnosing and treating sleep disorders. Teijin was the first in Japan to market SAFHS® (Sonic Accelerated Fracture Healing System), a supersonic bone fracture treatment device. Following the implementation of a new nursing care insurance system in Japan, Teijin has established a nationwide network of visiting nursing units. Teijin is reinforcing its R&D capabilities by entering into licensing agreements with leading overseas organizations. The Company is also taking steps to build a global R&D network. These include establishing a clinical testing facility in Princeton, New Jersey, in the United States. In response to revisions to Japan's national health insurance system, which reduced financial assistance for medical treatment, Teijin is also working to enhance efficiency and position itself to respond better with effective health care in a rapidly aging society.
