Our Approach to Harnessing Innate Immunity

Our Approach to Harnessing Innate Immunity

The power of the immune system to fight disease has intrigued scientists for centuries, but we have only scratched the surface of what is possible when we harness its power to fight cancer. At Takeda Oncology, we aim to broaden the impact of immunotherapies by exploring the untapped potential of the innate immune system.

The innate immune system serves as the body’s first defense mechanism against disease and has the power to orchestrate a broad arsenal of cell types and mechanisms that may help to overcome cancer’s ability to evade immune recognition.

Learn more about the role innate immunity plays in the cancer immunity cycle below.

The innate and adaptive immune systems work together to orchestrate a powerful cycle that, if successful, results in cancer cell death. Researchers at Takeda Oncology are exploring the untapped power of the innate immune system through multiple development programs that aim to transform this emerging science into therapies that can outsmart cancer and help patients live longer lives.
