1 The Patients Treated metric is calculated from Pfizer and third-party datasets. This estimate does not include Seagen patients treated. Figures may be limited given the coverage provided by external sources (e.g., calendar duration, geographic and product coverage) and are subject to change. Numbers are estimates and in some cases use global volume, daily dosage and number of treatment days to facilitate calculations. Methodologies to calculate estimates may vary by product type given the nature of the product and available data. Patients taking multiple Pfizer products may be counted as multiple patients towards total. Numbers do not include comprehensive estimated patient counts from Ex-US Access & Affordability programs. Historical estimates may periodically be subject to revision due to restatements in the underlying data source.
Values & Behaviors
Underpinned by our values & behaviors
Breakthroughs start by challenging convention-especially in the face of uncertainty or adversity. This happens when we think big, speak up, and are decisive.
We can only change patients' lives when we perform at our best together. This happens when we focus on what matters, agree who does what, and measure outcomes.
Every person deserves to be seen, heard, and cared for. This happens when we are inclusive, act with integrity, and reduce healthcare disparities.
We give ourselves to our work, and it also gives to us. We find joy when we take pride, recognize one another, and have fun.
