Bayer Announces New Data on Oncology Portfolio To Be Presented at the ECCO-ESMO Congress 2009
Date:9/16/2009

BERLIN, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer HealthCare today announced that data from more than 30 clinical trials evaluating three products in the company's oncology portfolio - Nexavar(R) (sorafenib) tablets, regorafenib (BAY 73-4506) and Alpharadin(TM) - will be presented at the joint 15th European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) and 34th European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Multidisciplinary Congress, September 20-24, 2009 in Berlin, Germany.

"While much progress has been made in the treatment of cancer, there is still an unmet medical need for improved therapies that may help patients manage their disease, ultimately treating cancer as a chronic illness, rather than a devastating disease."

Data on these indications being presented at ECCO-ESMO include results from two Phase III studies evaluating Nexavar in HCC and six studies examining Nexavar in RCC.

In addition to its current indications, Nexavar continues to be evaluated as a single agent or combination treatment in a wide range of cancers, including
