Research and Development
Because of our collaborative research with Bio-Venture Neurogen Inc., which the emeritus professor of Osaka University Toshikazu Nakamura, the first person in the world to discover HGF (hepatocyte growth factor) is a representative for, we were able to confirm a very high HGF production-inducing activity within a Japanese-Chinese mixed plant extract called “Ekc-1” developed by our company.
HGF (hepatocyte growth factor) is a bioactive protein that has a strong growth promoting effect on hepatocytes. Recent studies have made clear that the HGF can be used to regenerate and repair not only the liver but also many tissues and organs such as cranial nerves, kidneys, lungs, blood vessels, skin, and hair. It is known to be a active factor to repair and regenerate various damaged organs and tissue cells.
The Japanese-Chinese plant extract called Ekc-1 with a high HGF production-inducing activity, can be used to develop products aiming to regenerate and repair various tissues such as cranial nerves, kidneys, lungs, blood vessels, skin, and hair as well as the liver.
