Janssen Infectious Diseases & Vaccines

Infectious diseases account for 15% of all deaths worldwide each year.1 Therefore, we at Janssen are committed to the fight against infectious diseases; from viral hepatitis and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) to pathogens of global concern. We strive to discover and develop novel therapeutics and vaccines to help prevent, treat, improve treatment outcomes and ultimately healing of infectious diseases worldwide, thereby improving the lives of patients.

Our areas of focus for infectious diseases

Make HIV History

Building on our 25-year commitment to make HIV history, we aim to change the course of the epidemic through our passionate pursuit of innovative treatment, for the long-term remission from HIV, to effective prevention. The pursuit of a preventive HIV vaccine continues Janssen’s pioneering legacy in providing life-saving HIV medicines.

Hepatitis B

There are nearly 300 million people chronically infected with hepatitis B today. Of the fewer than 20% of patients who know they have the disease, only approximately 5% get treatment.2,3,4 This results in approximately one death every 30 seconds worldwide due to hepatitis B infection, mostly from complications including cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.3

Bacterial infections

We are prioritizing development of vaccines to protect people against bacterial infections, and exploring innovative technologies to treat those infected. Through new scientific approaches, we aim to reduce the potentially devastating consequences of bacterial diseases, dependency on antibiotics and, ultimately, the risk of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and multidrug resistance (MDR).
