The Power of Nature

SGH advanced several initiatives that will bring safe and effective medicines to patients

We are committed to discover and develop important natural/herbal based therapies to improve the lives of patients worldwide with lower side effects. Going forward, we will benefit from our unique positioning as the leader of the ”natural” wave that is reshaping the healthcare industry. 

Research work of Curcuma

A deeper understanding of the genetic basis of Curcuma and new insights into the benefits of Curcuma have resulted in promising NPD targets. Epigenetic is the study of heritable changes in gene expression that do not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence — a change in phenotype without a change in genotype — which in turn affects how cells read the genes. Epigenetic study of Curcuma xanthorrhiza revealed that Curcuma xanthorrhiza has many activities as anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-apoptotic. Curcuma xanthorrhiza also has potential to be developed as agent for type 2 antidiabetic, treatment for arthritis and osteoporosis, and anticancer.



Development of Natural Medicines with Seed to Patient Approach

Seed to Patient Concept

Assurance of Quality, Safety and Efficacy

Natural medicines can vary considerably depending on how they are produced. Seed to Patient (S2P) is a method where all of the processes involved in the growth and manufacture of a natural medicine are tightly controlled to reduce variability.

Open Innovation: ABGC Linkage

Our 70-year history has taught us that innovation comes from many sources and we will continue to pursue several significant research collaboration opportunities that complement our science, fit with our culture and have the potential to make a big difference for patients. Implementing the concept of Seed to Patient, SGH collaborates with various actors in the ABGC (Academic, Business, Government, Community) Linkage.

SOHO Center of Excellence in Herbal Research (SCEHR)

SGH has established the SOHO Center of Excellence in Herbal Research (SCEHR) which has focus on Temulawak (Curcuma xanthorrhiza Roxb.) research and cultivation. The plantation and research facility located on Cihanjawar village, Nagrak, Sukabumi  was inaugurated on August 2015. Since then several research projects have made significant progress to identify promising NPD targets.
