Direct Sales

Helsinn is committed to working with the US cancer-care community, and with this in mind, in 2009 Helsinn Therapeutics was established in New Jersey, USA, through the acquisition of a small biotech company. This important step in the company development has made Helsinn’s first direct presence in the USA territory possible.
