the 2nd most common autoimmune disease
Immune-inflammatory diseases are characterized by an inadequate response to the immune system that turns against the patient’s own tissues.
Servier concentrates its research and development efforts on three autoimmune diseases with very high medical needs: systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma and Sjögren’s syndrome.
Servier relies on several partnerships, for example with OSE Immunotherapeutics on Sjögren disease and since 2018, with ImmunoQure AG for the development of anti-interferon alpha antibodies in lupus. The year was also marked by the end of the patients’ enrollment in the global clinical study ROCCELLA (phase II) conducted in collaboration with Galapagos for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.
