Date:10/14/2010

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (Nasdaq: AMGN) today announced that results from several Prolia™ (denosumab) studies, as well as analyses of the growing global burden of osteoporosis, will be presented at the 2010 American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) annual meeting in Toronto, Ontario from Oct. 15-19, 2010.  

"The continued need to reduce fractures caused by postmenopausal osteoporosis is reinforced by data that will be presented at this year's ASBMR meeting. These data highlight the global economic burden associated with osteoporotic fractures, the challenges with adherence to oral therapies, and the link between adherence and fracture outcomes," said Catherine Stehman-Breen, M.D., vice president of Global Development at Amgen.  "Additionally, safety and efficacy results from the Prolia FREEDOM extension study will be available along with two new analyses of FREEDOM that evaluated the effect of Prolia on bone strength."

ASBMR abstracts are available and can be viewed online at www.asbmr.org.  Identified below are selected abstracts of interest on Amgen research.  Prolia Clinical Data
