We are leading the science in immunology through our research and development of advanced treatments for chronic, difficult to treat inflammatory diseases.
With two treatments on the market and a robust pipeline, Immunology is a strong area of growth for us and one in which we have already made a significant impact on the lives of patients. In collaboration with Regeneron, we have a first in class treatment for adults, adolescents and children (6-11 years of age) with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, adults and adolescents with moderate-to-severe asthma, and for adults with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRSwNP), three chronic and difficult to treat diseases driven by underlying type 2 inflammation. Our second treatment is for adults with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a chronic and painful inflammatory disorder that damages the joints. Our pipeline includes diseases driven by allergic and other type 2 inflammation, including eosinophilic esophagitis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), environmental and food allergies, as well as programs focused on juvenile idiopathic arthritis, giant cell arteritis, and polymyalgia rheumatica.

Understand AD is a national awareness campaign focused on educating people about moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD), a chronic form of eczema that can be serious. By educating people about the physical and quality of life impact of atopic dermatitis, Understand AD will give a voice to and empower the people living with the disease.
