Vertex Pharmaceuticals is focused on discovering medicines for people with serious diseases. Developing innovative medicines requires carefully designed studies in humans that evaluate the safety and efficacy of an investigational medicine.
Vertex is conducting trials in the following areas: Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, APOL1-mediated kidney disease, beta-thalassemia, cystic fibrosis, pain, sickle cell disease and type 1 diabetes. If you’re interested in a Vertex clinical trial, we encourage you to speak with your physician about what might be involved and your eligibility.
Learn about our clinical trials
Clinical trials are carefully designed research studies in humans that evaluate the safety and efficacy of an investigational therapy or treatment. If you’re interested in participating in a Vertex clinical trial, either as a healthy volunteer or as someone with a medical condition, we encourage you to speak with your health care provider first about what's involved and your eligibility.
When you participate in a clinical trial, you are contributing to research that could bring a potential therapy or treatment one step closer to reaching patients who need them. All potential therapies or treatments must go through a series of clinical trials before being approved. Thousands of people take part in clinical trials, globally, every year. Without them, medical progress and innovation would not be possible.

Our commitment to clinical trial diversity
Clinical trials should be representative of all people living with a specific disease. Ensuring appropriate diversity in participant characteristics helps Vertex to develop and deliver innovative medicines that can make a meaningful difference in the lives of all people living with that disease. Vertex recognizes that individuals may respond differently to a given treatment based on their age, biological sex, weight, race, ethnicity, geography and other factors. By providing equitable access to and including people from diverse backgrounds and locations, clinical trials can show if the potential treatments are safe and effective across patient populations. Vertex's aim is to sponsor inclusive clinical trials that represent the diversity of people living with the disease.
