Takeda’s Commitment to Gastroenterology in the United States
Takeda sees an urgent need for improving patient care in gastroenterology (GI) and has focused on improving the lives of patients through the delivery of innovative medicines and dedicated patient disease support programs for more than 25 years. We push boundaries and work across modalities, taking on the most complex GI conditions and the most neglected patient needs, boldly advancing original thinking and creatively tackling barriers to make a meaningful difference for patients. Challenging expectations and enabling innovative thinking, Takeda is part of more than 200 collaborations connecting people with a mutual commitment to action. Takeda is leading in areas of gastroenterology associated with high unmet need, such as inflammatory bowel disease, short bowel syndrome, and motility and esophageal disorders. Our GI Research & Development team is also exploring solutions in immune-related diseases, motility and liver diseases.
