At this year's annual American Society of Hematology (ASH) conference December 11-14, healthcare professionals, researchers and industry leaders will come together to share the latest advances in care for blood cancer patients. While medical congresses like ASH showcase the great strides that have been made in the treatment of cancer, they are also important reminders of the unmet needs that remain for patients.
Amgen is striving to meet these needs through a 360-degree approach that spans All Angles of Care for people living with cancer. Advances in medicines are an incredibly important aspect, but they are only one piece of the comprehensive care puzzle needed to attack cancer from all fronts. People with cancer need better and faster access to life-changing treatments and the right care solutions across their spectrum of needs—from prevention, to supportive care that helps to ease symptoms and the effects of cancer and its treatment.
"At Amgen Oncology, we are driven by the belief that we can do more for people with cancer by delivering a spectrum of cancer treatment options," said Mhairi Strachan, vice president, Global Oncology Marketing at Amgen. "From launching transformative medicines across core areas like hematology, lung, prostate and gastrointestinal cancers to serving patients comprehensively with outcome enabling solutions like supportive care and biosimilars, we know that we can raise expectations for what science, medicine and global health ecosystems can do."
