Our vision is to be a trusted leader in changing the practice of medicine. Novartis believes one aspect of building trust with society and research participants is through making our ongoing trials and their trial results public, regardless of the outcome of the trial.
Clinical trial results
Novartis has long been dedicated to informing the public about interventional trial results. Novartis launched the results website in 2005 becoming one of the first companies to provide this information to the public.
Trial summaries for patients
Trial summaries for patients are written in easier to understand language than the corresponding technical result summaries. Patients summaries are provided in English and local languages.
Ethics and diversity
For every Novartis clinical trial our primary responsibility is to protect the safety, well-being and legal rights of all participants and ensure adherence to the highest ethical standards for clinical research.
Diversity in clinical trials is integral to who we are at Novartis and we are working hard to improve both the diversity of patients enrolled in our clinical research and the investigators involved in our trials.
