, executive vice president for R&D, discussed Amgen's R&D investment, productivity and highlights of the Company's ongoing clinical programs.  

Perlmutter highlighted ongoing studies that will support the growth of Prolia and XGEVA in osteoclast-mediated bone disease. Phase 3 oncology programs highlighted included: AMG 386 for ovarian cancer; AMG 479 for pancreatic cancer and OncoVex(GM-CSF) for melanoma and head and neck cancer.  Perlmutter also announced the Company's intent to advance AMG 827 into Phase 3 for psoriasis and AMG 785 into Phase 3 for postmenopausal osteoporosis after successful results from Phase 2 studies.  Perlmutter expects that these five programs will provide Phase 3 results by 2015.
