Disease Areas Rare diseases
 

Driven by patient value, not patient numbers

People with rare diseases often feel forgotten, unheard or misunderstood. The challenges they face can be magnified by isolation, and they may wonder if anyone else cares about what they need. They worry their disease affects too few people for anyone to care.

The greatest needs can’t always be measured in numbers. At UCB, we don’t just see patients or population sizes, we see people in need.

Through decades of serving the neurology and immunology communities, we have improved lives with impactful medicines and enhanced the social and emotional well-being of patients.

As a continuation of our heritage, and a progression of our science, we are expanding our efforts to developing treatments for rare neurological and immunologic diseases where current options offer little hope. We believe our scientific strength in these fields can create genuine value for the patient communities we serve.
