Boehringer Ingelheim showcases expanding presence in lung cancer at ASCO 2015 with new data including presentation of afatinib* overall surv

INGELHEIM, Germany - Thursday, May 14th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

• LUX-Lung 8 Phase III study evaluating the efficacy and safety of afatinib* vs. erlotinib for patients with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the lung met secondary endpoint of overall survival

• 9 abstracts accepted including latest data for afatinib* and nintedanib** in lung cancer and beyond

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Boehringer Ingelheim today announced that the latest data from its oncology portfolio will be presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago, USA, 29 May – 2 June 2015. A total of 9 abstracts, including new data for afatinib* and nintedanib,** will emphasise the growing presence of Boehringer Ingelheim in lung and other cancer types.

The LUX-Lung 8 Phase III trial directly compared the efficacy and safety of two EGFR-directed treatments, afatinib* and erlotinib, in patients with advanced squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the lung, progressing after treatment with first-line chemotherapy. The study met its primary endpoint of progression-free survival, as well as its key secondary endpoint of overall survival. The overall survival data will be unveiled in an oral presentation. The outcome of the trial is highly anticipated due to the current poor prognosis and high level of unmet need for patients with this specific type of lung cancer.
