Amgen to present clinical data on multiple blood cancer treatments at EHA 2015

Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) today announced that it will present data from multiple Kyprolis® (carfilzomib) for Injection, BLINCYTO® (blinatumomab), oprozomib and Nplate® (romiplostim)‎ studies at the 20th Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA) taking place in Vienna, June 11 - 14, 2015. The data reinforce Amgen's commitment to advancing the care of patients with hematologic malignancies through the development of novel treatment approaches and continued evaluation of marketed products.

"We focus on blood cancers that have high unmet medical need, such as multiple myeloma and acute lymphoblastic leukemia, to make a positive impact for patients who desperately need more options," said Sean E. Harper, M.D., executive vice president of Research and Development at Amgen. "The data being presented at EHA show advancements in understanding how novel treatment approaches, such as Kyprolis, BLINCYTO and oprozomib, can work across various patient populations and stages of the treatment continuum."

Key data include findings from clinical trials in multiple myeloma, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), Waldenström macroglobulinemia and immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). Notable abstracts and satellite symposia of interest include:
