Partnering With Patients
Do you know how medicines are studied?
Healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, regulatory authorities (like the FDA) and patients work together to better understand and reduce risks of medicines. This extensive safety system is called Pharmacovigilance (PV). Pfizer has thousands of experts around the globe working to analyze and communicate the risks and benefits of our medicines both before and after they are approved for use. Patients also have an important role to play in reporting side effects they may experience.
