Immunology patient resources

Our commitment to elevating patient care in Immunology

At Bristol Myers Squibb, we are working to deliver meaningful solutions that address unmet needs in rheumatology, gastroenterology, dermatology and neurology. While there has been progress with medicines for immune-mediated diseases, people living with these conditions may not respond to available treatments. Many continue to endure chronic symptoms and disease progression that can take a toll on their daily life.

 

Our goal is to restore some of what immune-mediated diseases have taken away — empowering patients and their loved ones to take back their lives.

Immunology focus areas

Rheumatology

Rheumatic diseases can be debilitating for the tens of millions worldwide who often live with chronic pain that can make simple tasks and everyday activities challenging. 

Building on more than 20 years of experience, at Bristol Myers Squibb we are following the science to tailor therapies to a person’s individual needs, improve outcomes and expand treatment options for rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis, lupus and ankylosing spondylitis. Through our ongoing research, educational resources and partnerships with the community, our goal is to provide new solutions that advance care and provide the potential for remission.

Gastroenterology

Bristol Myers Squibb is pursuing innovative research to potentially change the course of gastrointestinal immune-mediated diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) (which includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease) and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), a chronic, progressive condition that affects the esophagus. 

Our innovations have the potential to provide relief and remission to people living with these conditions. Through our research, educational resources and connections with the community to provide support, our goal is to help empower patients to take back what these diseases often take away.
