SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Exelixis, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXEL) today announced that data from ongoing phase 2 trials of XL880 and XL647 in papillary renal cell carcinoma and non-small cell lung cancer, respectively, will be presented at the 2007 AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics, which will be held October 22-26, 2007 in San Francisco. In addition, phase 1 data for XL184, which inhibits MET, VEGFR2 and RET, will also be presented. In total, 13 abstracts for eight compounds have been accepted for poster presentation at the conference, reporting data from clinical trials or preclinical studies of XL880, XL647, XL184, XL147, XL765, XL820, XL844 and XL518.

"With 13 abstracts covering eight clinical-stage compounds, the 2007 AACR-NCI-EORTC meeting is an important opportunity to highlight the breadth and depth of our pipeline," said George A. Scangos, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Exelixis. "Critical to our goal of building a world-class oncology franchise is the rapid advancement of the 14 compounds currently in the clinic and the continued ability to advance additional compounds into development. We believe our strong presence at this meeting is evidence of our productivity. Three of the phase 1 compounds that will be discussed were preclinical compounds at this time last year and we will present phase 2 data from trials that were initiated less than 18 months ago."
