Home > Press > New data highlighting ABRAXANE as single agent and in combination for the treatment of breast, lung and ovarian cancers to be presented at ASCO

Abstract:
Abraxis BioScience, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABBI), an integrated, global biopharmaceutical company, today announced that multiple studies of ABRAXANE(R) for Injectable Suspension (paclitaxel protein-bound
particles for injectable suspension) (albumin bound) will be presented at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago, June 1-5, 2007. Data will be presented from studies which highlight the potential utility of ABRAXANE (ABI-007) as a single-agent and in
combination for the treatment of breast, lung and ovarian cancers.

New data highlighting ABRAXANE as single agent and in combination for the treatment of breast, lung and ovarian cancers to be presented at ASCO

LOS ANGELES, CA | Posted on May 30th, 2007

An updated analysis of the study titled "A Randomized Phase II Study of
Weekly or Every 3 Weeks ABI-007 vs. Every 3 Weeks Taxotere(R) as First Line
Therapy of Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer" (Abstract 1032) will be
presented as a poster on Saturday, June 2, 2007 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m
(Room S403), with a poster discussion following from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., S406
(Vista Room). The updated analysis of the Phase II study evaluates first-line
treatment ABRAXANE given weekly and every three weeks compared to Taxotere(R)
(docetaxel) dosed every three weeks in patients with metastatic breast cancer.
Interim results of this study were presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer
Symposium in December 2006.
Abraxis is continuing to expand its clinical experience with ABRAXANE and
its potential in treating multiple tumor types as a single agent and in
combination. Data from company and investigator-sponsored studies in breast,
lung and ovarian cancer will be presented during the poster presentations
including:
