Amgen introduces new rheumatoid arthritis book and first online resource for access to interleukin-1 (IL-1) research

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., October 30, 2000 -- Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) today announced the introduction of Interleukin-1.com and Proinflammatory and Anti-Inflammatory Cytokines in Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Primer for Clinicians, two new resources designed to provide health care professionals with updated, reliable and comprehensive information about the role of cytokines, specifically interleukin-1 (IL-1), in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Interleukin-1.com is the first Web site with the latest scientifically rigorous clinical data regarding IL-1 in RA. As 65 percent of physicians -- more than twice as many as four years ago -- use the Internet to access medical research today , the Web site provides a quick and easy way for rheumatologists to keep informed about new research through a medium many already utilize.

"There is mounting evidence that IL-1 plays a fundamental role in the disease progression of rheumatoid arthritis," said Keith Leonard, vice president of rheumatology marketing at Amgen. "As the only online resource about IL-1, Interleukin-1.com meets a need for rheumatologists and other health care professionals who want access to the latest research. It is another example of Amgen's commitment to research and scientific exchange in the area of rheumatology."

The Web site consists of access to published materials, including relevant articles and abstracts, plus the new expanded version of the popular Proinflammatory and Anti-Inflammatory Cytokines in Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Primer for Clinicians. This book, authored by Dr. Charles A. Dinarello, professor of medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, is intended to familiarize general health care professionals, as well as rheumatologists, with aspects of cytokine biology as they relate to the understanding of rheumatoid arthritis in humans.

The field of cytokine biology is rapidly expanding and the primer offers insight into the groundbreaking clinical work le
