Boehringer Ingelheim to Sponsor the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation's Efforts to Promote Genetic Biomarker Testing
Date:11/7/2013

SAN CARLOS, Calif. and RIDGEFIELD, Conn., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF) and Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (BI) today announced that BI will sponsor ALCF's efforts to raise awareness about the importance of immediate genetic biomarker testing for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

"This sponsorship is important because of how critical genetic biomarker testing is for an accurate diagnosis and for helping to match each patient with the most appropriate therapy as early as possible," said Bonnie J. Addario, founder of the ALCF and a stage 3B lung cancer survivor. "This testing sets the stage for a new personalized standard of care with the goal of improving outcomes for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer."

ALCF will honor BI at its Annual Gala in San Francisco on November 9 with the prestigious "Simply the Best" award recognizing BI's contributions to the lung cancer community. Specifically, BI has for nearly two years led an initiative called Let's Test to increase awareness of biomarker testing in advanced NSCLC. Let's Test provides relevant information and educational resources to healthcare providers with the goal of helping to improve patient outcomes. The initiative also outlines how the diagnosis and treatment of advanced NSCLC has evolved, as well as the multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers that are involved in the process.

"Boehringer Ingelheim is honored to be supporting the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation to help communicate the importance of immediate biomarker testing for patients diagnosed with advanced non-small cell lung cancer," said Kevin Lokay, vice president and business unit head, Oncology, Boehringer Ingelhei
