Novartis aims to tackle breast cancer with bold science, collaboration, and a passion for transforming patient care. We take a bold approach to our research by including patient populations who are often neglected in clinical trials, identifying new pathways or mutations that may play a role in disease progression, and developing therapies to help extend and improve the lives of patients.
Together with partners, we are committed to reimagining the fight against chagas disease and advocating for an integrated, end-to-end care approach.
Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
Chronic myeloid leukemia, or CML, is a type of cancer that develops in the blood-forming cells of the bone marrow, in which immature cells build up and eventually invade the blood.
Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU)
CSU is the medical term for chronic hives that last for six weeks or longer, where the underlying cause is internal rather than exposure to any allergen or external trigger. Affecting 40 million people worldwide, CSU is an immune-related condition characterized by itchy hives and/or deep tissue swelling (angioedema), which can occur on the face, throat, hands, and feet. There is no one biologic marker, and it may be mistaken for an allergic reaction, making it difficult to diagnose and manage. CSU causes significant emotional distress to people with the disease, with many suffering from sleep deprivation and high rates of anxiety or depression. This shouldn’t have to be their reality. Leveraging expertise in this disease is critical to address the unmet needs of people with CSU to ensure that they receive the care they deserve.
