Pfizer Oncology to Showcase New Data from Innovative Science That Address Patient Needs at ASCO 2019 Annual Meeting

Data spans 10 therapies across 10 types of cancer

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) will present data across its industry-leading
oncology portfolio, covering multiple tumor types and mechanisms of
action at the 55th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical
Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago from May 31-June 4, 2019. Data will highlight
Pfizer’s cutting-edge approach, expertise in precision medicine and work
in immunotherapy combinations, including company-sponsored and
collaborative research studies.

“The data presented at this year’s ASCO showcase our continued
commitment to follow the science, whether it’s expanding our approved
medicines for breast and prostate cancers into new populations and lines
of therapy, or exploring the important role of biomarkers and
immunotherapy combinations,” said Dany Habr, M.D., Chief Medical
Officer, Pfizer Oncology. “We look forward to both sharing our exciting
data in these and other tumor types, as well as connecting with our
research partners to determine how we can continue to work
collaboratively to bring transformative therapies to our cancer

The research to be presented includes new insights on Pfizer’s marketed
therapies, including IBRANCE® (palbociclib), XTANDI®
(enzalutamide), TALZENNA® (talazoparib), BOSULIF® (bosutinib),
INLYTA® (axitinib) and BAVENCIO® (avelumab), which
represent Pfizer Oncology’s long-standing legacy of developing
innovative therapies for patients in need, as well as its ongoing
commitment to addressing the needs of cancer patients across gender,
ethnicity and tumor type. For example, Pfizer will present real-world
data on the use of IBRANCE for the treatment of men with metastatic
breast cancer (MBC).

“At this year’s ASCO, I am particularly excited that we’ll share data
from new initiatives such as the oral presentation of talazoparib in
breast cancer or other solid tumors. This builds on a productive year
with the approval of four new oncology treatments, three biosimilars and
three new indications, including one based on real-world evidence,” said
Chris Boshoff, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Development Officer, Oncology, Pfizer
Global Product Development. “We are proud to have one of the broadest
oncology portfolios in the industry, and a research philosophy that puts
patients first, embraces new approaches and showcases innovative

Key Pfizer-sponsored, investigator-sponsored and collaborative research
abstracts leveraging the depth of Pfizer’s scientific advances include:

  • A poster presentation on real-world evidence of male breast cancer
    patients treated with IBRANCE in combination with endocrine therapy
    (Abstract 1055).
  • An external investigator-sponsored oral presentation on a Phase 2
    trial examining TALZENNA beyond BRCA, specifically as
    monotherapy in BRCA1 and BRCA2 wild-type patients with
    advanced HER2-negative breast cancer or other solid tumors with a
    mutation in homologous recombination (HR) pathway genes
    (Investigator-sponsored abstract 3006).
  • Biomarker analyses from JAVELIN Renal 101 that studied BAVENCIO plus
    INLYTA vs. sunitinib in advanced renal cell carcinoma (aRCC) (Abstract
  • An external collaborative research presentation on genomic markers of
    early progression on fulvestrant with or without IBRANCE for ER+
    advanced breast cancer in the PALOMA-3 trial (Collaborative research
