PHC Holdings Group history begins in 1969 when it was established as Matsushita Kotobuki Electronics Co., Ltd. Steadily growing in the healthcare sector, the company has been expanding business globally through integration with the healthcare-related business divisions of Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. in 2012, followed by investments from KKR and Mitsui & Co., Ltd.

For Medical Devices it has developed and commercialized the blood glucose monitoring technologies using enzymes that are now a global standard and incorporated in many blood glucose monitoring systems. Other PHC Holdings Corporation flagship products include medical-receipt computers and electronic patient record systems for its Healthcare IT business that facilitate efficient operations for healthcare providers, as well as ultra-low temperature freezers and CO2 incubators that support scientific research from its Life Sciences business. These products are used extensively by many customers as PHC Holdings Corporation was able to develop and launch them in markets well ahead of others.

Working closely with healthcare and life science professionals, the PHC Holdings Group aims to retain and maximize its value to customers and society through innovation and meeting every challenge.

The drug also showed great results in the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis.
