New Data Show That Herceptin, Xeloda and Avastin Help Patients With Early and Advanced Breast Cancer Live Longer or Remain Disease Free for Longer
Date:12/10/2008

BASEL, Switzerland, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- New data being presented at the CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) show that Herceptin (trastuzumab), Avastin (bevacizumab) and oral Xeloda (capecitabine) continue to offer new and better treatment options for breast cancer patients allowing women to live longer or remain disease-free for longer if the medicines are given before and after surgery as well as in advanced stages of disease.

    Key data being presented include:

    - Herceptin before surgery: Results from the NOAH (NeOAdjuvant Herceptin)
      phase III study showed that women with locally advanced HER2-positive
      breast cancer who started a combination of Herceptin and standard
      chemotherapy prior to surgery had a significantly greater chance of
      living free of their disease (event-free survival) three years after
      initiation of treatment as compared to women who were receiving pre-
      operative chemotherapy alone.

    - Xeloda in early breast cancer: Early data from an independent study in
      Finland and Sweden indicate that the chemotherapy pill Xeloda, which is
      already proven in advanced breast cancer, may also reduce the
      recurrence of early breast cancer and help women live longer. This is
      one of 20 Xeloda abstracts that have been accepted for presentation
      during SABCS.

    - Avastin in advanced breast cancer: First efficacy results from the
      largest ever safety study of Avastin in a real-life setting, which
      involved more than 2,000 patients with locally recurrent or metastatic
      breast cancer, confirm that Avastin can be used with a broad range of
      chemotherapy treatments giving patients a median of almost 10 months
      without their disease getting worse. The results, which are one of 24
      separate Avastin data presentations during SABCS, confirm that Avastin
      based therapy is essential for improving the li
