Takeda has a Research Ethics Investigation Committee in the Pharmaceutical Research Division to handle issues associated with human-derived specimens (blood, tissue, cells and other substances). Committee members confirm whether or not specimens are used for research in line with the Declaration of Helsinki. A separate Bioethics Committee is responsible for research that uses human genome and gene analysis. Six staff consisting of both genders make up this committee and half or more of the permanent members must come from outside the Takeda Group.
3 outside committee members (among six members)
