COLLEGEVILLE, Pa., May 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, a division of Wyeth (NYSE: WYE), has donated $100,000 to The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Cancer Foundation to help support its efforts to advance cancer research, provide patients with important health information and conduct physician education programs. The donation was presented today during the 45th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Orlando, Fla.

"Wyeth is proud to support The ASCO Cancer Foundation and its ongoing mission to improving the lives of people with cancer. With this contribution, we hope to help the Foundation in its important educational and research efforts to reach more patients and their families, and to provide additional resources to the researchers seeking new treatments to help better manage cancer," said Mikael Dolsten, M.D., Ph.D., President, Research and Development, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals.
