A new report from the American Cancer Society sheds light on declining death rates from cancer—especially lung cancer. We asked an expert on the disease to break down the data, and share what's to come in better detecting and preventing it.
From robotics solutions for orthopedic surgery to the potential to bring new hope to patients living with multiple myeloma through CAR-T, these are just some of the cutting-edge projects that these visionaries think could potentially help propel healthcare forward around the globe.
A team of scientists, including those from Janssen andthe Lung Cancer Initiative at Johnson & Johnson, found that biomarkers related to the immune system may be able to aid doctors in identifying high-risk lung cancer patients—and treating them—at the earliest stage of the disease.
Frederic Moll, M.D., has been called "the father of robotic surgery" for good reason—his inventions have helped pave the way for improved surgical procedures for decades. His new challenge: an innovation that has the potential to diagnose and treat disease at the same time.
Some 20% of people diagnosed with the disease haven't touched a cigarette. For National Cancer Prevention Month, scientists who've dedicated their research to defeating lung cancer discuss why early detection is so key—and what you can do to protect yourself.
Trillions of beneficial bacteria live in and all around us. What if we could use them to our advantage, to do everything from prevent diabetes to reduce inflammation? Dirk Gevers, Ph.D., Global Head of the Janssen Human Microbiome Institute, shares how his team is already well on that research path.
From breakthrough work to eradicate some of the world's deadliest diseases to advancements in cutting-edge health technology, see just some of the ways Johnson & Johnson is working to help change the trajectory of health for humanity.
From "targeted therapies" to "precision immuno-oncology," the scientists at Janssen Oncology are looking at cancer treatment from all innovative angles. For National Cancer Prevention Month, they let us in on some of the work they're doing to help transform cancer care as we know it.
They share one thing in common: a goal of transforming the way illnesses are treated in the most forward-thinking way possible. Meet three innovators whose ideas could someday change the future of healthcare.
