Data presented at the American Society of Oncology's annual meeting Saturday showed the companies' Tarceva treatment increased survival by 42% in patients with end-stage non-small-cell lung cancer.

Shares in both companies rose in early trading, but then fell back. Genentech shares fell $3.10, or 5.2%, to $56.31 while OSI shares lost $4.51, or 5.7%, to $74.02.

OSI is expected to seek marketing approval for Tarceva from the Food and Drug Administration this summer.
