Drug Trials Snapshots provide consumers with information about who participated in clinical trials that supported the FDA approval of new drugs. The information provided in these Snapshots also highlights whether there were any differences in the benefits and side effects among sex, race and age groups. Drug Trials Snapshots is part of an overall FDA effort to make demographic data more available and transparent.


Each Snapshot contains information about the drug in a question and answer format. At the end of each section of the Snapshot, there is a shaded bar with the words “MORE INFO”. Click the “MORE INFO” bar for more technical and detailed content. At the bottom of each Snapshot, there is a link to the drug’s Package Insert as well as the medical review.


The Snapshot is intended as one tool for consumers to use when discussing a drug’s risks and benefits with their physician. Do not rely on Snapshots alone to make decisions regarding medical care. Do not use Snapshots to substitute for advice from your health care professional.  Conclusions regarding how effective and safe a drug is among different sex, race, and age groups cannot always be made, often because the numbers of patients in some groups are too limited to allow for meaningful comparisons to other groups and to the overall results.


CLINICAL TRIAL: Voluntary research studies conducted in people and designed to answer specific questions about the safety or effectiveness of drugs, vaccines, other therapies, or new ways of using existing treatments.
COMPARATOR: A previously available treatment or placebo used in clinical trials that is compared to the actual drug being tested.
EFFICACY: How well the drug achieves the desired response when it is taken as described in a controlled clinical setting, such as during a clinical trial.
PLACEBO: An inactive substance or “sugar pill” that looks the same as, and is given the same way as, an active drug or treatment being tested. The effects of the active drug or treatment are compared to the effects of the placebo.
SUBGROUP: A subset of the population studied in a clinical trial. Demographic subsets include sex, race, and age groups.
