Samsung Bioepis, a division of Samsung Biologics, announced a joint venture with Japan's Takeda Pharma to develop novel biologic drugs. The JV's first project will be TAK-671, a candidate aimed at severe acute pancreatitis. Samsung Biologics has two divisions: a biologics CMO operation, and Samsung Bioepis, a company formed by Samsung and Biogen.

One year ago, Samsung Biologics staged a $2 billion IPO on the Korean market.
