Innovation in Chronic Pain Management

Chronic pain has a significant impact on patients, health care systems and economies around the world, and Pfizer is working to address the unmet medical needs in chronic pain management. With Eli Lilly we are progressing tanezumab, an investigational treatment for osteoarthritis pain, chronic low back pain and cancer pain. Tanezumab acts in a different manner than opioids and other analgesics and in studies to date, has not shown risk of abuse, addiction or dependence. In the first Phase 3 study from our ongoing program, tanezumab demonstrated significant improvements in osteoarthritis pain and physical function compared to placebo. Additional results in osteoarthritis pain and chronic low back pain are anticipated in 2019. If approved, tanezumab would be a first-in-class treatment.
