INGELHEIM, Germany - Thursday, May 15th 2014

    Overall survival results from a post-hoc analysis combining the data of two Phase III studies (LUX-Lung 3 and LUX-Lung 6) demonstrate that first-line afatinib treatment reduced the risk of death by 19% for patients with lung cancer with common types of EGFR mutations.1
    Patients lived a median of three months longer if they started treatment with afatinib rather than chemotherapy.1
    A separate Phase III study (LUX-Lung 5) in patients whose lung cancer progressed after several treatments, showed the advantage of continuing afatinib with chemotherapy after the tumours started to grow under afatinib alone.2
