Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) announced today that data from XGEVA® (denosumab) and Vectibix® (panitumumab) studies will be presented at the 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress, Sept. 23 - 27, 2011, in Stockholm, Sweden.  

"The data being presented at the 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress reflect Amgen's ongoing commitment to advancing the understanding of cancer and developing novel therapies to treat it," said Willard H. Dere, M.D., senior vice president and international chief medical officer at Amgen.  "New biomarker analyses for Vectibix reinforce the importance of patient selection when EGFR inhibitors are used in metastatic colorectal cancer, while data from the '147 study demonstrate the potential for XGEVA to be the first treatment to prevent the spread of prostate cancer to the bone."
