rare diseases

Every life has value

How ‘rare’ is a rare disease? There is no universal or standard definition of rare disease. A disease that occurs infrequently is generally considered a rare disease. There are between 7000 - 8000 rare diseases, but less than 5% have therapies available to treat them(1). Many of these diseases are genetic in origin and therefore have to be managed throughout a person’s life.

Globally, we have developed a portfolio of more than 20 medicines to treat various rare diseases in the areas of hematology and inherited metabolic disorders, including serious, life-long illnesses. There is also a growing focus on gene therapy where our dedicated research unit is working on bringing breakthrough therapies for patients.
