Bayer Announces Upcoming Presentations of Campath(R) and Leukine(R) Data at the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology
Date:12/5/2008

WAYNE, N.J., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced today that data on Campath(R) (alemtuzumab) and Leukine(R) (sargramostim) will be presented at the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) from December 6-9, 2008 in San Francisco, California.

Clinical investigators from leading oncology and hematology research centers will present data through several oral and poster presentations reporting important findings in leukemia-related disorders, such as prognostic indicators for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and side effects such as chemotherapy-induced neutropenia.

Campath is indicated in the United States as a single agent for the treatment of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL). Leukine is indicated for use following induction chemotherapy in patients 55 years and older with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) to shorten the time to neutrophil recovery and to reduce the incidence of severe and life-threatening infections and infections resulting in death.

"We are pleased to see continued developments on both Campath and Leukine," said Pam Cyrus, Vice President, Medical Affairs, Oncology, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals. "These studies further demonstrate Bayer's ongoing commitment to supporting research to benefit the lives of people living with cancer."

Abstracts are now available on the ASH Web site at http://www.hematology.org.

Among the data that will be presented are the following:
