Pfizer Oncology today announced that important data from its lung cancer and renal cell carcinoma (RCC) portfolios will be presented at the upcoming European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress in Vienna, Austria, September 28 - October 2, 2012.    

"We believe that the clinical trial results to be shared at ESMO 2012 substantially enhance our knowledge of both marketed and investigational therapies from our lung and kidney cancer portfolios," said Mace Rothenberg, MD, senior vice president of clinical development and medical affairs for Pfizer's Oncology Business Unit. "We are especially pleased to be able to share, for the first time, detailed results of PROFILE 1007, a randomized trial comparing XALKORI to standard chemotherapy in patients with recurrent, ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). These results, which will be presented at the Presidential Symposium, reinforce the value of Pfizer's precision medicine approach to drug development, and demonstrate the benefit that targeted, efficient and science-driven cancer drug development can have on patient outcomes."
