ontreal. The study met the primary and all secondary end points.

Nplate (TM) (romiplostim): The Company noted that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Nplate, the first and only agent that acts directly to increase platelet production for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in splenectomized (spleen removed) and non-splenectomized adults with chronic immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Nplate, the first FDA-approved peptibody protein, works by raising and sustaining platelet counts, representing a novel approach for the treatment of this chronic disease.

Nplate was also approved for ITP by Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in July 2008. Amgen has filed for regulatory approval of Nplate in the European Union (EU), Canada, and Switzerland and these applications are currently under review.

AMG 317: The Company announced that it has reviewed interim results from a phase 2 study of AMG 317 in patients with moderate to severe asthma. The data showed evidence of biological activity; however, the clinical efficacy from the interim analysis did not meet expectations. The phase 2 study will be completed this year and results will be submitted to an appropriate peer-reviewed forum.
