A Model for Long-Term Partnerships

Pierre Fabre has grown to be a major international player in Pharmaceuticals, whilst maintaining a human dimension to our activities. This allows us to adapt quickly and act with creativity and agility to bring innovative projects with our partners to a successful conclusion, and to provide optimal access to markets and targeted promotion of differentiated therapeutic products. To embark on a collaboration with Pierre Fabre is to partner with a company which, through its unique shareholder structure, benefits from strong governance and stability, thus guaranteeing a long-term strategic vision. Our corporate alliances benefit fully from our expertise, allowing us to execute efficiently the agreements put into place with our partners.
Thus, at Pierre Fabre, we are committed to building partnerships which will develop and become richer over time. An Alliance Management team, in charge of current partnerships, ensures that the value of the collaboration is optimized at all times, both at project and corporate level.

What are we looking for?


Oncology is a priority field of activity for Pierre Fabre, with more than 40 years of experience in the research, development and marketing of innovative products.
Through our Business Development activities, our primary interests are focused on innovative products ranging from the pre-clinical stage through to the late stages of development, including;

  • Innovative products targeting subpopulations of patients with solid tumors such as skin cancers, including melanoma, gastrointestinal cancers and cancers affecting women.
  • Targeted therapies focused on oncogenes, key signaling pathways in the tumorigenesis process.
  • Mechanisms in immunotherapy

We are particularly interested in different therapeutic classes including small molecules, monoclonal antibodies and antibody drug conjugates.


Prescription Drugs:

40% of the revenue of our pharmaceutical division comes from prescription drugs, particularly in urology, gynecology, rheumatology and pediatrics.
Pierre Fabre has developed its portfolio by signing different licensing and promotion agreements.
Our interest is focused on products ready to be launched or already on the market, in European territory and other key geographic areas (Africa, Asia and the Middle East).

We offer you the opportunity to launch and maximize the potential of your products in accordance with agreements adapted to your needs, to provide patients with therapeutic solutions.
