Immunology - For the PEACE Within

back to Immunology

The PEACE Within represents Janssen’s commitment to supporting people living with immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMIDs). We do this in many ways: by partnering with patient advocacy groups and working with doctors, scientists and institutions all around the world, and by staying motivated to achieve a world where IMIDs are a thing of the past.


Our commitment to the PEACE Within


When a person lives with an IMID, there is a battle being waged within their immune system which causes it to malfunction; we want to restore balance. Every member of our team is striving to bring the PEACE Within to people living with IMIDs.

Through our unceasing research, we continue to improve our understanding of the immune system, and to discover and develop better treatments. We will not rest until we achieve a world where immune-mediated inflammatory disease is a thing of the past. We are for the PEACE Within.

What are immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMIDs)?

There are up to 70 million people in Europe living with IMIDs such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.[1]

These conditions all share a common link: they are debilitating, chronic, life-shortening and sometimes even fatal. Pain, fatigue and an inability to perform everyday tasks are the most apparent symptoms, and many people also suffer from severe comorbidities. These diseases can develop at any age, and have a significant impact on quality of life. [2], [3], [4], [5], [6]

“Our work aims to raise the bar to make periods of disease remission more durable and allow patients with these debilitating diseases to lead normal lives.”
