Urology and Kidney diseases/conditions
Mictochondrial Based Therapies
The largest disease area of focus for Astellas is oncology. We pursue therapies for hard-to-treat cancers where few therapies exist. We are committed to delivering value to cancer patients and their families through innovative science in cancers with high unmet need. In our Medical Specialties function, which supports our non-oncology programs, we focus on the underlying biology of many disease areas and the multiple methods and approaches used to treat them. We also focus on advancing new areas of discovery research:
Blindness & Regeneration, where we are investigating potential new treatment options for restoring and maintaining vision, for example in the case of macular degeneration.
Mitochondria Biology, which aims to discover potential mitochondria targeted therapies to address diseases with high unmet needs like Primary Mitochondrial Myopathy (a muscle disorder).
Genetic Regulation, which works on making progress in gene therapy with the potential to transform the lives of patients with genetic diseases like Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy (a muscle disorder).
Immuno-Oncology, which works to discover potential cancer treatments that use a patient’s own immune system to target cancer.
With this focus, we are working to turn innovative science into VALUE for patients.
