This advanced system plays a pivotal role in facilitating proactive measures and optimal decision-making, allowing for advanced process operation simulations where data integrity is demonstrable.

Looking ahead, Daewoong Pharmaceutical plans to leverage its smart manufacturing processes to actively pursue GMP certifications in additional countries, including developed nations. This strategic move aligns with the company’s goal of establishing a smooth global expansion of its innovative drugs.

The press release also includes forward-looking statements cautioning about potential challenges, including regulatory and governmental approvals and the success of clinical trials. These statements provide transparency regarding the uncertainties inherent in the pharmaceutical industry and the potential impact on Daewoong Pharmaceutical’s business and results of operations.
