Regenerative medicine is a fast-emerging sector catching a great deal of attention in Japan. The Japanese regulation on Regenerative Medicine is regarded as one of the most advanced in the world which allows early commercialisation in the market after Phase II with conditional approval status. The Accelerated Approval process for regenerative medicine products is very unique to Japan.
