"Cancer is a complex disease which requires innovative therapeutic approaches. Amgen is exploring numerous biologic pathways to develop novel therapies to treat cancer and lessen the side effects of cancer and its treatment," said Willard Dere, M.D., senior vice president and international chief medical officer at Amgen. "The data being presented at this year's ESMO Congress, including new denosumab and AMG 386 analyses, reflect the breadth and diversity of Amgen's oncology portfolio."
