ASCO Results: Oncologists Rank Genentech Number One
Date:6/10/2008

SAN MATEO, Calif., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- When asked which company stood out at last week's ASCO conference in Chicago, oncologists cited Genentech at the top of the list, according to AlphaDetail, Inc., a leader in oncology primary market research and influence network mapping solutions to the Global Life Sciences Industry.

In a brief on-line survey of 103 oncologists conducted soon after the close of the conference, AlphaDetail was able to gather some interesting feedback about oncologist perceptions of the meeting. The ASCO Annual Meeting attracts more than 30,000 attendees and is considered the premier educational and scientific event in the oncology community.

-- 60% of US oncologists attended the ASCO Annual Meeting.

-- Oncologists rate Genentech #1 on overall image in oncology and cite it

as the top company that stood out above the others at ASCO.

-- Oncologists cite the following as the three most important pieces of

data presented at ASCO:

-- KRAS status predicts response to first-line cetuximab for

metastatic colorectal cancer.

-- Erbitux (cetuximab) + platinum-based chemotherapy extends overall

survival in NSCLC vs. chemotherapy alone.

-- Zometa (zoledronic acid) increases survival for premenopausal

patients who received adjuvant endocrine therapy for early breast

cancer.
