Making a difference in infectious diseases
Infectious diseases present a serious risk to the health of people in the UK and worldwide.
These diseases include viruses such as influenza, HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C (HCV) and human papilloma virus (HPV) and infections such as sepsis, chlamydia and gonorrhoea. All have the ability, under different conditions, to spread from person to person.
To limit the spread of infectious diseases it is essential to diagnose them early and treat them effectively.
As the world leader in in-vitro diagnostics and viral disease treatment, Roche is at the forefront of tackling infectious diseases. We research, develop and provide products to diagnose, treat and monitor viruses or bacterial infections.
We have a rich history of medical innovation in this field and a promising future with our focus on personalised healthcare - an approach that specifically takes into account emerging knowledge about the molecular pathology of diseases and of patients’ individual characteristics.
