Stocks in this article: AMGN

THOUSAND OAKS and SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and its subsidiary Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced that nearly 40 company-sponsored and investigator-sponsored investigational studies evaluating carfilzomib, a second-generation proteasome inhibitor, and oprozomib, an oral second-generation proteasome inhibitor in early development, will be presented at the 55 th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition on December 7-10, 2013 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.

"We are encouraged by the breadth of data from our Proteasome Inhibitor franchise being presented this year at ASH, which add to the clinical data of carfilzomib in combination with other therapies and provide further insight into the level of response for carfilzomib at a molecular level. Additionally, data to be presented on oprozomib offer clinical insights instrumental in driving forward our clinical development program for the compound," said Pablo Cagnoni, M.D., President of Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  "We remain committed to bringing innovative therapies to patients in need, and we look forward to playing a continued role in advancing the scientific understanding of hematologic malignancies."

Among the presentations are five abstracts from the Proteasome Research and Integrative Science for Multiple Myeloma – Novel Therapies Program ( PRISM NTP), a global research collaboration between Onyx, investigators at myeloma centers of excellence and partner companies with novel therapies in development. "The PRISM program further demonstrates our commitment to innovation and advancing science," said Homa Yeganegi, Vice President of Scientific Affairs at Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  "This program is a highly innovative approach to industry-academia collaboration, bringing together leaders from the myeloma research community in the service of a common goal: driving an integrated, personalized approach to the development and delivery of medicines to patients."
