Respiratory & Immunology
Following the science to improve patient outcomes
Building on a 50-year heritage in respiratory care, our ambition is to transform the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by driving earlier, biology-led treatment, eliminating preventable asthma attacks, and removing COPD as a top-three leading cause of death.
Underpinning chronic lung diseases is an altered immune system. AstraZeneca is following the science of common pathways and underlying disease drivers from respiratory disease into immunology-driven disease areas.

Committing to COPD Today and Tomorrow
2020欧洲杯体育在线平台Deterioration of lung function is progressive in COPD, and early diagnosis and intervention therefore play a central role for physicians and their patients. This is true with today’s treatment standards but could be even more imperative with potential disease modifying treatments in the future.
Advancing research in systemic lupus erythematosus
Research into the underlying drivers of SLE is supporting the potential development of new treatment options for this complex autoimmune condition.
By following the science in immunology we are also gaining new insights into how immune processes may play a role in a broad range of conditions.

Hear from Brad
"I have worked in immunology for over 15 years, but when I joined AstraZeneca’s global commercial organization I was especially excited by the chance to work on a potentially transformative medicine for lupus and other diseases that have had so little therapeutic advances in the past several decades. "
