Improving health is one of the toughest challenges facing the world today. As a global biopharmaceutical company, AstraZeneca has a key contribution to make through the discovery, development and commercialisation of innovative medicines for important areas of healthcare, including cardiovascular/metabolic disease, cancer and respiratory, inflammatory and autoimmune disease.
AstraZeneca India was established in 1979 and is headquartered at Bengaluru, Karnataka. It is present in seven crucial areas of healthcare - Cardiovascular, Diabetes, Oncology, Respiratory & Inflammation, Infection, Local Anesthesia and Maternal Healthcare.
AstraZeneca has been regularly launching products from its global portfolio in India over the past years, leading to the development of several domestic power brands including Crestor, Seloken XL, Meronem, Arimidex, Zoladex, Nexium and most recently Brilinta.”
Scientists at AstraZeneca’s state-of-the-art research facility in Bangalore focus on infectious diseases, a significant public health issue both locally and internationally. They also support the worldwide efforts of the company’s Global Medicines Development (GMD) unit.
The Infection research team - housed at the first infection R&D centre to be set-up by a multinational biopharmaceutical company in India - are engaged in finding new and better treatments for tuberculosis (TB), one of the greatest disease challenges the world faces today, along with other so-called ‘neglected diseases’. GMD also has a strong Bangalore presence, via a world-class Pharmaceutical Development group that supports early- to mid-stage clinical development and late-stage life-cycle management across AstraZeneca’s core therapy areas.
