There are over 80 known autoimmune diseases. These are chronic conditions that occur when a patients’ own immune system attacks an otherwise healthy part of their body, and almost any body part can be affected. Being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease can be challenging for patients, as often the cause of disease is unknown and there may be no cure available.
Treatment of autoimmune diseases differ depending on the severity of symptoms, which often include a combined treatment approach with lifestyle modifications alongside pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to help minimise the progression of the condition.
At Accord, we are innovating in the area of autoimmune disease and focusing on delivering medicines that may improve the patient experience and outcomes. We are continually looking to add to our existing portfolio of autoimmune medicines, with the aim of improving patient access to affordable medicines. We also continue to invest in research and development to deliver a differentiated product range, aligned to patient and healthcare professional needs.
