Trade with Russia and CIS


We initially imported live vaccine for poliomyelitis from the former Soviet Union to Japan. This is the beginning of our business.

Subsequently we imported various medicines from the Soviet Union, such as human growth hormone, anticancer medicine “Ftorafur,” and chloridic compounds. At the same time, we also exported medical devices, such as diagnostic ultrasound machines, endoscopes and electroencephalographers.

Addition to that, upon demand from Japanese companies, we have organized various researches and developments of new technologies and products, utilizing the fundamental science and techniques developed in the CIS countries, in order to introduce such products to the Japanese market.
