New data from Bayer's investigational oncology compounds to be presented at ECCO-ESMO congress

Bayer HealthCare announced today that the company will present data on several of its investigational compounds at the 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress (ECCO-ESMO), September 23-27, 2011, in Stockholm, Sweden. These presentations, including the pivotal Phase III ALSYMPCA (ALpharadin in SYMptomatic Prostate CAncer) data evaluating radium-223 chloride in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), will highlight the potential of Bayer's growing oncology pipeline.

"We look forward to presenting the complete Phase III data on radium-223 chloride for the first time following the positive results from the ALSYMPCA interim analysis released earlier this year," said Kemal Malik, MD, Head of Global Development and member of the Bayer HealthCare Executive Committee. "These data, along with other presentations from our oncology pipeline, serve to demonstrate Bayer's commitment in cancer."
