Clinical Trial Information

Clinical trials are research studies that are designed to determine if a medicine is safe and effective for patients. The FDA and medical experts agree that the best way for patients to obtain access to medicines before they are approved in the United States is through participation in a clinical trial.

At Genentech, our focus is on enrolling patients in clinical trials to obtain the data required for review and approval by regulatory authorities, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Approval by regulatory authorities around the globe is the only way to make medicines broadly available to patients by prescription by a qualified healthcare provider. Therefore, our focus is in the best interest of the majority of patients with a serious or immediately life-threatening disease who require treatment.

We recognize that some patients with serious or immediately life-threatening diseases may not be eligible for any clinical trials and may not have other options. In rare circumstances, Genentech may provide patients with access to unapproved or investigational medicines outside the clinical trials process. Learn more about early access options here.
