Vectibix: The Company discussed the approval of revisions to the U.S. prescribing information for the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFr) class of antibodies, including Vectibix by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This decision follows the FDA's December 2008 Oncologics Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) meeting where the clinical utility of the KRAS gene as a predictive biomarker in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) treated with anti-EGFr antibody was discussed. Use of Vectibix is not recommended for the treatment of colorectal cancer with KRAS mutations in codon 12 or 13.

Motesanib: The Company indicated that enrollment has resumed for the Phase 3 MONET1 trial evaluating motesanib in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin for the first-line treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
