Ethics in Research and Development
Responsible animal research
Orion is committed to responsible animal research. We comply with all national and international principles for research involving animal testing. We recognise our responsibility for animals, and employees in our research facilities work around the clock to ensure the welfare of the animals.
Using Human Tissues, GMO and Stem Cells
Tissue samples of human origin are utilized by Orion in various in vitro studies in drug discovery and development. Additionally, we utilize genetically modified organisms in our research. This material is sourced from high standard, reliable and ethically solid suppliers which use controlled and traceable sources and provide documentation for the material.
Ethics in the marketing phase
After a new product has been approved for marketing and for clinical use in patients based on the results of a years long, thorough, and strictly controlled research and development process, the monitoring of safety and efficacy continues until the product is no longer available.
