Date:4/1/2009

DENVER, April 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Responding to President Obama's call for "a cure for cancer in our time," the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) delivered a new report today on medicines in the research pipeline for cancer. The report shows that America's pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies are testing a record 861 new cancer medicines and vaccines. The medicines listed in the report are being tested in human clinical trials or are awaiting approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

This year, more than half a million Americans are expected to die of cancer -- more than 1,500 a day. In Colorado, the lifetime risk of cancer is 1 in 2 for males and 2 in 5 for females. The most commonly diagnosed cancer in the state is breast cancer, followed by prostate and lung cancer.

"We released this report in Denver because of Colorado's growing role in developing cancer medicines," said PhRMA Senior Vice President Ken Johnson, who unveiled the report at the State Capitol Building.

"Oncology is one of Colorado's core research competencies, so the President's call to cure cancer resonates powerfully in our state," said Colorado Lt. Governor Barbara O'Brien. "We are proud that the cancer medicines now in the research pipeline in Colorado are contributing substantially to the incredible progress made in the last five years by biopharmaceutical companies in developing new and more effective cancer treatments.
