Dengue

Takeda's tetravalent dengue vaccine candidate (TAK-003) is based on a live-attenuated dengue serotype 2 virus, which provides the genetic “backbone” for all four vaccine viruses. TAK-003 is currently in Phase 3 development and being investigated for the prevention of dengue.

COVID-19

Takeda partnered with the Government of Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) and global vaccine developers to rapidly and sustainably supply COVID-19 vaccines in Japan.

Zika

Takeda’s Zika vaccine candidate (TAK-426) is an inactivated, adjuvanted, whole Zika virus vaccine and will begin Phase 2 development in mid-CY2022.
