CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & OSAKA, Japan, May 31, 2022 – Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) (“Takeda”) today announced that it will present data at two upcoming scientific congresses this spring: the 58th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), June 3-7 in Chicago, Ill. and the 30th Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA), June 9-12 in Vienna, Austria. Takeda’s latest research in oncology focuses on enhancing and improving patient care while exploring novel approaches for patients with limited treatment options.
Data presentations span a range of cancers, including lymphoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma and non-small cell lung cancer, including early insights into investigational therapies that leverage the innate immune system.
“Our data at this spring’s medical congresses are indicative of our quest to outsmart cancer and our ability to work collaboratively with partners to further our research capabilities,” said Christopher Arendt, Ph.D., Head of Oncology Cell Therapy and Therapeutic Area Unit of Takeda. “In addition to sharing data on currently approved therapies, we look forward to presenting early findings from our innate immunity clinical programs – many of which are exploring novel mechanisms of action – that we believe have the power to advance the field of oncology and recast current standards of care.”
