Extensive Clinical Data on Erbitux Presented at the 2007 ASCO,Annual Meeting

15% (P = .0479). This result, combined with a 21% improvement in response rate (46.9% vs. 38.7%, P = .0038), demonstrates that ERBITUX is a meaningful treatment option when added to FOLFIRI for first line metastatic CRC.

The presented CRYSTAL data also reflects that, due to the ability of ERBITUX to shrink tumors in this first-line setting, the opportunity for improving patients' likelihood of surgical resection with curative intent may exist. Curative surgical resection is the therapeutic goal for the roughly one third of colorectal cancer patients who have metastatic disease confined to the liver. Based on the data presented, of the total study population, roughly three times as many patients in the cetuximab plus FOLFIRI group had their tumors completely removed (p=0.0034). These findings are important because they point to the potential for ERBITUX plus FOLFIRI to help patients who were initially unable to undergo a complete resection.

"Although there has been incremental progress in the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer during the last decade, individual cancer patients and their families are looking for therapies that can provide reasonable probabilities for long-term survival and cure. This can be accomplished by new treatments that increase the likelihood that curative surgery can be performed," said Eric Rowinsky, M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of ImClone Systems. "We are very encouraged that the data from CRYSTAL suggests that the addition of ERBITUX to chemotherapy improved the surgical resection rates with curative intent in first-line colorectal cancer patients with metastases limited to the liver."

Also presented at the meeting were quality of life data from the EPIC (Phase III, second-line mCRC) and NCIC CO.17 (Phase III, refractory mCRC) trials. The EPIC study showed that ERBITUX, in combination with irinotecan, significantly improved survival without progression and provided a superior quality of lif
