Lilly Studies Try to Shed Light on Impact of Race on Lung Cancer,Treatment

Company Launches 1,000-Patient Lung Cancer Diversity Study

CHICAGO, June 01, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Statistics show lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in African-Americans, with 21,550 new cases expected to be diagnosed and 16,700 deaths expected this year.(i) Equally devastating, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Hispanic men and the second leading cause of cancer death in Hispanic women.(ii) Researchers at Eli Lilly and Company are actively investigating the efficacy and safety of lung cancer treatments ALIMTA(R) (pemetrexed for injection) and GEMZAR(R) (gemcitabine HCl for injection) in treating non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in African-Americans, Hispanics and other diverse populations.
