Bayer HealthCare to present new data on oncology portfolio at ASCO meeting

Bayer HealthCare announced today that new data on the oncology portfolio, including Nexavar® (sorafenib) tablets, Stivarga® (regorafenib) tablets and the recently U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved product Xofigo® (radium Ra 223 dichloride) injection will be presented at the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), May 31 – June 4, in Chicago, IL (USA). These data showcase Bayer's commitment to developing treatments for difficult-to-treat cancers. 

"Bayer's oncology franchise has had a remarkable year of growth since ASCO 2012, receiving two drug approvals from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in three tumor types with high unmet medical need," said Pamela A. Cyrus , MD, Vice President and Head of U.S. Medical Affairs, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals. "At this year's ASCO, data presentations on Bayer's products will highlight our continued commitment to making ongoing investments in areas where therapeutic options are very much needed."
