We are a global, science-led biopharmaceutical business and our innovative medicines are used by millions of patients worldwide. Driven by innovative science and our entrepreneurial culture, we are focused on the delivery of life-changing medicines that are fuelling growth and contributing value to patients and society.
We aim to save the lives of people who suffer from Chronic Kidney Disease, Diabetes, Heart Failure and Cardiovascular Disease by advancing Cardiovascular-Renal-Metabolic (CVRM) solutions and addressing shared risk factors between these distinct but interrelated disease areas. Our aim is to protect the lives of 50 million people in the next year from the often-devastating consequences of heart failure, cardiovascular, metabolic and renal diseases.
Shared risk factors of CVRM diseases are still often not diagnosed or addressed1-4, and we are committed to help change clinical practice, to address unmet medical needs and create a seamless disease management pathway for patients worldwide.
