Lilly Oncology to Present New Data on Nine of Its Pipeline Molecules at ASCO 2011
Date:5/16/2011

INDIANAPOLIS, May 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Data on nine Lilly Oncology molecules in development will be presented during the 47th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) held in Chicago, Ill. from June 3 – 7, 2011.  Lilly Oncology's pipeline is one of the largest in the industry, with more than 30 molecules in development to treat various types of cancer.  

Nearly all of these pipeline molecules are being evaluated for certain biomarkers or genetic mutations that can help researchers identify which patients are most likely to respond to these medicines, and as importantly, which are not.  

At ASCO, Lilly will present Phase II data on two fully human IgG1 monoclonal antibodies: cixutumumab for the treatment of patients with advanced or metastatic soft tissue sarcoma and Ewing family of tumors; and ramucirumab for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.  Lilly will also present data on a Phase I study of LY2127399, a human anti-BAFF antibody for patients with previously-treated multiple myeloma.  Additionally, Lilly will present data from several studies of enzastaurin, a selective serine-threonine kinase inhibitor that targets the PKC Beta and PI3/AKT pathways.

"Lilly is very much in alignment with this year's ASCO conference theme, 'Patients, Pathways, Progress,'" said Richard Gaynor, M.D., vice president, product development and medical affairs for Lilly Oncology.  "Our extensive oncology pipeline targets important pathways and specific genetic mutations that can lead to cancer, which we hope will enable us to come up with better therapies, more quickly.  This is part of our commitment to changing the world of cancer care," he added.    

Select studies, as well as the times and locations of the data sessions, are highlighted below.
