등록일 2020-04-13

■ Celltrion Group was among the first that have embarked on the development of a therapeutic antibody treatment and a diagnostic kit on the onset of the global spread of the novel coronavirus, in a bid to contribute to stopping what would escalate into the global pandemic.


■ As Celltrion Group Chairman Seo Jung-jin has said earlier, the development of these solutions is driven by our commitment to placing the public interest before our own. Simply put, we are acting on our responsibility as a faithful member of the global pharmaceutical community as we willingly step up and respond to a global pandemic.


■ Our researchers are working round the clock to contribute to the world’s common battle to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic. We ensure that any significant progress is promptly, and transparently, shared with the world, because we would like to give the people a sense of hope that we are moving towards an end of these difficult times.


■ We advise our investors to understand that our efforts regarding the coronavirus treatment and the diagnostic kit are not commercially motivated, and their investment decisions should be made based on our business records and the underlying values of our product portfolio.


■ Leading the global antibody biosimilar market, we have been growing continuously on back of our robust fundamentals.We independently developed and led the global launch of monoclonal antibody biopharmaceuticals such as Remsima, Truxima, Herzuma, and Remsima SC. We are becoming a global pharmaceutical corporation representing South Korea.


■ We ask for your continued interest in our vision for future growth as we continue to build upon our own technological capabilities and R&D know-hows.
