Leading the Way to a Better Life for Patients.
Diabetes diminishes quality of life, threatens multiple organ systems and shortens life itself. For millions of people worldwide, diabetes adversely impacts every hour of every day.
- Blindness in adults
- Non-accidental amputations
- Kidney failure
- The 7th leading primary cause of death - and it tends to worsen most of the other top 10 causes of death.*
At PPD, diabetes is more than a problem to solve. Our people have a passionate commitment to change these daunting statistics by helping our clients develop better treatments.
Our goal is to help more patients defeat diabetes, rather than be defeated by it.
Together with our clients, physician investigators and trials participants, we are advancing the fight against diabetes. Together, there will be better diabetes therapies. Together, patients will live better with diabetes, every hour of every day.

Diabetes is a problem of epidemic proportions that’s in need of a solution of similar scope.
