Autoimmune diseases - Current status and trends

September 18, 2019 / 4:00 pm

In Germany it is estimated that at least five to eight percent of the population suffer from an autoimmune disease. The immune system targets the body's own cells or tissues that are recognized as "exogenous" and reacts with a defensive reaction. So far, around 100 autoimmune diseases have been described. Well-known examples include rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn's disease and multiple sclerosis.
The diversity and complexity of these numerous different clinical pictures results in a huge need for suitable therapies and accordingly places high demands on science and industry when it comes to the development and provision of new and improved forms of therapy. With this year's edition of the biotech report "Medical Biotechnology in Germany 2019", vfa bio and Boston Consulting Group focus on the medical needs in the field of autoimmune diseases and highlight current developments and trends. The results of this report will be presented at the Life Science Factory in Göttingen. Representatives from science and from companies specializing in this field will give their views at the event.

Keep in touch!
