    CNS disorders are on the rise due to factors such as aging, lifestyle changes, and stress. Effectively treating such a wide range of conditions is a challenge for many societies. Meiji Seika Pharma's primary focus is on new treatments for depression and schizophrenia, as well as Dravet syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy of unknown cause.
