Looking toward the future
Our growth will be driven by further internationalization, core products maximization and gradual increase of focus on specialties like Parkinson’s Disease - CNS and severe respiratory diseases
Focus on Parkinson's
We started our efforts in Parkinson’s Disease in 2015; as of today, few tens of thousands of patients benefit from our drug, the product of our commitment in such a debilitating disease.
Over the next few years, we will focus our efforts on research to significantly improve the patients’ life around the world.
Focus on severe respiratory disease
We have initiated two pivotal trials for patients affected by bronchiectasis unconnected to Cystic Fibrosis, with the aim of assessing the effectiveness and safety of our drug for the treatment of Fibrosis, and for the prevention of the re-occurrence of lung infections due to chronic pseudomonas aeruginosa colonization.
The expansion of our core products continues, with a particular focus on emerging countries
Cough and cold, women's health and pain relief are Zambon's established treatment sectors, in which we will continue to grow, in particular in emerging countries, such as China.
We focus our investments in research and innovation both on the chemical-pharmaceutical business and on exploring new business opportunities for the group
Open R&D: clinical studies and investments in new molecules
We will continue to invest in R&D, initiating new clinical studies connected to the CNS (Central Nervous System), rare diseases and respiratory diseases.
New Zcube investments
Zcube, Zambon's research venture, which has already established Open Accelerator, will continue to invest in new accelerator programs dedicated to Life Sciences, in order to foster the creation and development of new innovative and successful start-ups.
OpenZone campus expansion
Zambon continues to focus on investing in innovation and research by means of the new OpenZone development plan. The campus dedicated to Life Sciences just outside Milan will double in size by 2021 with a new project designed by architect Michele De Lucchi, cementing its role as a place where science meets industry.
People e digital strategy
Zambon invests in its people with the aim of incorporating digital skills, which in the near future will increasingly transform our approach to health care.
Zambon, a solid Italian reality with a sound international outlook
Now we are ready to explore new international business opportunities. In 2016 we signed a significant agreement for the distribution of our treatment for Parkinson's Disease in the US, thus laying the foundations for new growth prospects in the US market.
At the same time, we are considering potential expansion in an increasingly international context, where develop new treatments aimed at improving the quality of life of patients.
