Breakthroughs changing more than 1.3 billion lives
In 2022, we applied the lightspeed principles that drove the development of our COVID–19 vaccine and treatment to help address unmet needs across all therapeutic areas. Our people continued to live our values—courage, excellence, equity, and joy—pursuing their passions and impacting an evolving world.
Breakthroughs at lightspeed
Pfizer can reach more patients with life-saving treatments, sooner.
Since 2019, we’ve decreased our median first-in-human to approval development timeline for new medicines and vaccines from nine years to approximately five years in 2022.
Partnerships that Change Patients’ Lives
Pfizer's innovation goals can only be achieved by being the partner of choice for academia, biotechs, advocates, and technological revolutionaries. Some of our partners:
In 2014, Pfizer and OPKO entered into a worldwide agreement for the development and commercialization of NGENLA® for the treatment of growth hormone deficiency.
U.S. Government (PAXLOVID®)
We inked an agreement with the U.S. government to deliver 20 million PAXLOVID courses (nirmatrelvir tablets and ritonavir tablets).
Our work with Tigerlily aims to empower Black women with breast cancer to feel more educated and supported to participate in clinical trials.
These passionate Pfizer colleagues transformed personal visions into large-scale realities that are positively impacting people all over the world.
