Pfizer has an extensive pure substance library that encompasses all of our publicly known compounds. We review each request regarding use of our compounds for content, value, and consistency with Pfizer's direction for the requested compound. For approved requests Pfizer executes Compound Transfer Agreements (CTAs) that provide the compound free of charge to a third party to conduct the agreed upon study. Please note that while the compound and shipping are a gift, the recipient is responsible for any VAT taxes that may be applicable. We require a manuscript or report of the conclusions to bring closure to the study. Pfizer reserves the right to deny any request that we feel does not advance our compound(s) or add value to health.
