Business idea in short

Disease Treatment by self-healing power using a TNF (tumor necrosis factor)-α vaccine

Social issue to tackle | Business concept

Our team succeeded to develop a vaccine to suppress TNF-α, which is related to various diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, in mice. Application of this vaccine to human diseases will improve symptoms of the diseases, decrease caregiver burden and contribute to lower national health expenditure.


It is challenging, but we obtained a good result in mice experiment and this vaccination therapy has potential for application to various diseases. The success of our project will help not only patients but also caregivers. Their smile is my motivation.
