RIDGEFIELD, Conn., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Boehringer Ingelheim will present new data on the company's two lead oncology compounds, BIBW 2992 and BIBF 1120 at the 2009 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the company announced today.

Interim Phase II data from the LUX-Lung 2 study suggest BIBW 2992 has anti-tumor activity in advanced, second-line, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients who have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations.(2)

"Lung cancer kills more people than any other cancer.(3) The LUX-Lung 1 and 2 studies represent an opportunity to investigate BIBW 2992 across a range of different patient populations," said Dr. Manfred Haehl, corporate senior vice president, Medicine, Boehringer Ingelheim.
