If health authorities such as the U.S. FDA approve the study medicine for use by patients with the condition, doctors and pharmacists will become aware that it can be prescribed. Pfizer typically releases public statements when its new medicines are approved, and we list our approved medicines on Pfizer.com. We also commonly create websites and other materials to inform healthcare professionals and patients about the medicines.
Keep in mind that study medicines typically go through a series of clinical trials before they are submitted to health authorities for approval. For a study medicine to be considered for approval, those clinical trials must collectively show that the study medicine is safe and effective. So, depending on the study you were part of, the study medicine may be very close to approval, approval may be years away, or approval may never come.
