Amgen Highlights Data to Be Presented at American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting
Date:12/2/2010

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amgen (Nasdaq: AMGN) today announced that it will present data from several key Nplate® (romiplostim) studies at the 52nd Annual Meeting and Exposition of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), Dec. 4-7, 2010, in Orlando, Fla. Results from six studies evaluating Nplate in adult patients with chronic immune (idiopathic) thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) add to the growing body of data supporting the use of Nplate in this setting, including the final efficacy and safety results from the largest and longest study of Nplate in adult chronic ITP. Amgen will also present data for other marketed products including Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim) and Aranesp® (darbepoetin alfa).

"The complete results from a 5-year open-label extension study of Nplate in the adult chronic ITP setting show that Nplate increases and sustains platelet counts in these patients and that adverse event rates were consistent with those reported in previous studies," said Sean Harper, M.D., senior vice president, Global Development and Chief Medical Officer at Amgen. "This is the largest and longest study of Nplate in this setting, and reinforces the potential of Nplate as a long-term treatment option."

Amgen also announced the expansion of its Neulasta FIRST STEP® Program to its newly established co-pay coupon umbrella program, the Amgen FIRST STEP™ Program for commercially insured patients.  The Amgen FIRST STEP™ Program will feature the Nplate FIRST STEP™ Program and Neulasta FIRST STEP® Programs.  The Amgen FIRST STEP™ Program is significant among oncology commercial co-pay coupon programs, as it is the first program under the medical benefit with no income eligibility requirement. The program is intended to help eligible patients meet their deductible, co-insurance, and/or co-payment r
