Every Patient Counts

A rare disease is defined as a disease or condition that affects less than 200,000 people in the United States, according to the FDA. However, one out of every 10 people is living with a rare disease in America alone. At Amgen, our mission to serve patients goes beyond our six core therapeutic areas. We work to serve every patient, every time.
