Increasing Diversity in Clinical Trials

Environment, race, ethnicity, culture, age and gender are all factors that may impact patient outcomes but, historically, have not been fully accounted for in clinical trials. For several years Pfizer has been actively working to address this issue by requiring our development programs to recruit participants who are more representative of the patient populations living with the conditions under study. Among our innovative approaches are a real-time dashboard for tracking diversity of participants on an anonymized basis, education regarding the importance of diversity in our investigator training programs, new partnerships focused on recruiting diverse study participants, and expanding where our research is done to include more underserved areas.
