Given its high-risk nature, many companies have reduced their investments or even abandoned research within brain disease. Lundbeck has tirelessly sustained its focus in this critical area of medicine.
In the coming years, we will take additional actions to address discriminatory, physical, economic, and informational barriers to make safe and efficacious brain disease treatments more accessible.
Running a sustainable business requires us to invest in new and better treatments for patients, while reducing the societal burden and delivering a competitive return to our shareholders. The value we generate from our marketed medicines allows us to reinvest in research and development of new and better treatments.
We work to enhance cultural acceptability of brain diseases, improve mental health parity, reduce stigma, support disease awareness and offer
education. The ultimate beneficiaries are those with brain disease and their care partners.
Lundbeck partners with advocacy groups, including the World Federation for Mental Health, National Alliance on Mental Illness, Depressn and Bipolar Support Alliance and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Our partnership with the International Association for Early Interventions on Mental Health aims to promote the #ChatSafe Guidelines for online communication about suicide prevention.
Our actions to provide medicines are of a good quality cover the value chain from early research, clinical development and manufacturing, through to distribution to pharmacies.
We integrate our quality and patient safety processes into our ‘GxP’ Quality Management System. GP stands for Good Practice and x represents Laboratory (GLP), Clinical (GCP), Pharmacovigilance (GPvP), Manufacturing (GMP), and Distribution (GDP). Our Good Practices are maintained through procedures, training, and regular auditing. Our GxP Quality Management System aligns with Lundbeck's Code of Conduct, business objectives and processes, and with national and international regulatory requirements.
Counterfeit medicine is fake medicine. It is deliberately mislabelled products with the correct or wrong ingredients, without active ingredients, with insufficient active ingredients or with fake packaging.
We take stringent measures to secure our supply chain and ensure that genuine Lundbeck medicines reach patients every time. We protect the integrity of our products by labelling packages with batch numbers, serial numbers and 2D matrix technologies. We use transport companies audited and approved through our quality agreements. We collaborate with customs authorities to surveil shipments claiming to contain Lundbeck products and engage with international organizations dedicated to fighting counterfeit medicine.
