Our Commitment to Transparency

Transparency is inherent in our commitment to serve the patient by creating a vibrant, inventive and ethical culture that will help people lead better, fuller lives today, tomorrow and well into the future. Shire is committed to responsible sharing of clinical study data.

Sharing Results with Patients Who Participate in Clinical Studies

Shire believes our patients come first; we want to show our clinical study participants how much they are appreciated for their participation.  Shire launched a program in 2014 to make summarized study results for select studies available in lay language so participants are informed of the outcome of the clinical study in which they participated.  Shire will continue development of summarized study results in plain language for certain studies over a pilot period and will voluntarily expand current disclosure standards by making them available not only for patients, but also for the general public via Shiretrials.com.
