(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla appears to be at it again, this time sponsoring the Oscars as its pending drug for alopecia, an autoimmune disease characterized by hair loss, took center stage, Wayne Dupree reported.
It is of note, then, that Pfizer sponsored the event at which the disease won fame.
Pinkett Smith’s suffering took center stage at the Oscars as Will Smith pathetically slapped comedian and host Kevin Hart, who had made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s bald head.
With awareness now raised for the disease, Pfizer has decided to swoop in and put out its own pharmaceutical solution to the newfound problem.
Currently, there are no FDA approved drugs for Alopecia, though Bourla’s team has notably risen to the occasion. Earlier this month, Pfizer acquired Arena Pharmaceuticals, a small company which specializes in Alopecia research.
Of course, the Big Pharma giants sponsoring the elitist event were sure to let us know how heartened they were to see Hollywood elites congratulate each other for their achievements.
“Pfizer and BioNTech are proud to support the Oscars, and we are heartened to see the film industry gather in person and alongside fans to celebrate the talent and artistry produced during the past year,” a Pfizer spokesperson said.
