Clinical Trials – Our Data Sharing Commitments
Sanofi believes that making clinical trial data available to the research community promises to advance science and medicine, contribute to improvements in public health and improve knowledge about and trust in pharmaceutical drug development.
The concept of sharing data for research purposes is not new for Sanofi. Our company has a history of contributing to initiatives where data sets are pooled for research purposes.
The pharmaceutical industry as a whole demonstrated its support for sharing of clinical data when in July 2013, the members of PhRMA and EFPIA developed and endorsed a set of Principles for Responsible Sharing of Clinical Trial Data.
