Human Vaccines

Preventing infections and improving public health

KM Biologics' history of vaccine production started with the smallpox vaccine over a half century ago. Since then, we have produced many vaccines including those for typhoid and typhus, and have contributed to the eradication of infectious diseases in Japan. In recent years, through collaborating with companies and universities in Japan and overseas, we have been working on the development of new vaccines such as cell culture-derived influenza vaccines and DPT-based combined vaccines.

Antitoxins and Antivenoms

Using reliable technologies for treatment of poisoning / envenoming

Today, KM Biologics is the only company in Japan to produce antitoxins and antivenoms. We began manufacturing antivenom products (for mamushi and habu) around 1970, and then started producing antitoxins for botulism, diphtheria, and gas gangrene for the national stockpile in Japan. We utilize highly specialized facilities and reliable technologies to manufacture and supply antitoxins and antivenoms that contribute to the treatment of snake bites and infectious diseases.
