Making science personal: Lilly Oncology to unveil 76 studies at ASCO 2007

INDIANAPOLIS, May 23, 2007 -- Lilly Oncology will unveil 76 studies at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago, Ill. from June 1-5, 2007. The company will present important data on GEMZAR (gemcitabine HCl for injection), ALIMTA (pemetrexed for injection), and enzastaurin, an investigational, oral, targeted therapy. There will also be numerous studies that continue to use GEMZAR and ALIMTA as chemotherapeutic foundations in innovative combinations with new targeted therapies.

"This is an exciting time in cancer research as we are moving away from 'one-size fits all' treatment," said Richard Gaynor, M.D., Lilly vice president, cancer research and global oncology platform leader. "Lilly's commitment to finding the right drug, at the right dose, for the right patient at the right time will be demonstrated at ASCO this year."
