INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) will present new data from its clinical
Key abemaciclib data include findings from the Phase 3 MONARCH 2 trial evaluating abemaciclib plus fulvestrant in women with hormone receptor-positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) advanced breast cancer. Additionally, results will be presented from Lilly's ongoing immuno-oncology clinical collaboration with Merck (known as MSD outside the U.S. and Canada) on the KEYNOTE-189 trial evaluating pemetrexed plus platinum chemotherapy in combination with pembrolizumab in the first-line treatment of metastatic nonsquamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Ramucirumab data include Phase 3 findings from several patient populations with aggressive disease such as the REACH-2 study of ramucirumab as a single agent in the second-line treatment of people with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), also known as liver cancer, and the RANGE study evaluating ramucirumab in combination with docetaxel in patients with locally advanced or unresectable or metastatic urothelial carcinoma whose disease progressed on or after platinum-based chemotherapy. Pegilodecakin data include new results from an early-phase study in patients with renal cell, non-small cell lung, pancreatic, ovarian and breast cancers.
"The breadth and depth of our data being presented at ESMO underscores this year's congress theme of 'securing access to optimal cancer care' by demonstrating how we are working to develop innovative new medicines that will make a difference to patients and doctors," said Maura Dickler, M.D., vice president, late phase development, Lilly Oncology. "We're also excited to share data for the first time from our promising next generation clinical immunotherapy asset pegilodecakin, which examines its potential in several tumor types in combination with existing treatments and as a monotherapy. We are encouraged by the results and look forward to further investigating pegilodecakin in a wide range of settings."
