Otsuka has always had a philosophy of developing and delivering drugs for diseases where there is an unmet medical need, and in nephrology (the medical speciality that concentrates on kidneys), that philosophy is particularly apt. Our main focus in this area is autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), an inherited disease in which fluid-filled cysts grow in the kidneys, impairing their function and eventually resulting in kidney failure. We continue to work in this area to help ADPKD patients and raise awareness of the condition.
