Kyowa Kirin International (KKI) is leaping forward to establish itself as a Japan-based global specialty pharmaceutical company. We strive to contribute to the health and well-being of people around the world, and have the goal of answering the unmet medical needs of patients, their families and healthcare professionals.

Our specialty pharmaceutical business was established as ProStrakan in Galashiels in the Scottish Borders, expanding through partnerships and acquisitions before becoming part of Kyowa Hakko Kirin in 2011. The company was rebranded as Kyowa Kirin International in 2016 and has recently opened an office in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.

The company’s focus is in oncology and rare diseases and it is entering into a phase of unprecedented rapid expansion, as it introduces a series of novel treatments which address unmet therapeutic needs. As well as transforming the lives of the patients concerned, this growth will create many exciting new roles across the UK and overseas.

Underlying our business philosophy is a firm commitment to ethical behaviour with key values based on integrity, innovation and teamwork. The interests of the patients our products treat will always be at the centre of what we do.

We have a reputation as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of IT clinical support services, with a strong record in helping clients to reduce costs, increase efficiency and improve outcomes for patients. We have also become a lynchpin in developing mutually beneficial relationships between the pharmaceutical industry and the NHS. We help pharmaceutical clients to improve market access for medicines and products, and facilitate partnerships with the NHS that help patients.

Whether we are working with public sector or private sector clients, we are able to deliver a service that is tailored to meet specific objectives. The vast experience and knowledge we have gained from working with the NHS ensures we deliver outcomes that benefit patients and improve future care provision.

We help pharmaceutical and medical device companies to improve care by facilitating partnerships with the NHS. As part of a Medical Education Goods and Service (MEGS) proposal or Joint working agreement, we can identify patients who may benefit from a review to optimise care.

Also, as part of our promotional services we can identify patients who may fall within the licence indication of a specific brand. In addition, our in-depth knowledge of working with the NHS helps our pharmaceutical clients safely navigate NHS rules and regulations.

The Publicis Health Powerhouse: Publicis LifeBrands, Publicis Resolute and Real Science (PLBRS)

At PLBRS we bring together advertising, public relations and medical education with our unique blend of curiosity, imagination and ideas.

We recognise that as health fast becomes mainstream, the role of the healthcare communications agency has changed. Patients and consumers are increasingly empowered, informed and enabled. As health, fitness, nutrition, medicine, magic and myth become interwoven, categories become more and more complex – making healthcare harder to navigate.

From birth, people learn to make sense of the world first through images, then through stories and numbers. Naturally wired to blend our logical, emotional and sensorial systems, we navigate the world through a uniquely instinctive union of our senses. However, stuck in silos, healthcare communications assumes people think in silos. It is not set up to help patients or physicians use their natural instincts to navigate, understand or act.

That is where we come in. At PLBRS we are wired to think differently. Our diverse and multidisciplinary approach gives us the power to bring together the fundamental navigation systems of the human brain. We are the Powerhouse that is helping the world make instinctively better sense of health.

PLBRS is part of Publicis Health – the largest health-orientated agency-network in the world.
