For nearly two decades, AbbVie Immunology has led the way in developing treatment options that address some of the world’s most difficult, unmet health needs.

UPADACITINIB has the potential to be a best-in-class agent that is differentiated in many ways, so our focus on a patient-centric unmet need will be critical.
