Amgen Presents Data from Several Prolia Studies
Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) today announced that it has presented data from several Prolia® (denosumab) studies, including data from the open-label extension study of the pivotal Phase 3 fracture trial, which showed continued increases in bone mineral density (BMD) and low fracture incidence over six years. These data, and those from several key studies, were presented at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) 2012 Annual Meeting in Minneapolis from Oct. 12-15, 2012.
"The data presented provide additional insight into the long-term clinical profile of Prolia," said Sean E. Harper, M.D., executive vice president of Research and Development at Amgen. "Given the increasing burden of osteoporosis in an aging population, it is important to see that continued Prolia therapy may provide ongoing benefit."
