Autoimmune inflammatory disorders

Our ambition

Our ambition is to develop novel immunotherapies that will significantly improve the lives of people with autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and inflammatory bowel disease. Novo Nordisk has established a state-of-the-art inflammation research site in Seattle, and we have a number of innovative monoclonal antibody projects in clinical development within autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
