AstraZeneca: new data show Tagrisso advantage.

(CercleFinance.com) - AstraZeneca said on Monday that new data showed an advantage for patients with EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer and metastases patients treated with its Tagrisso drug compared with standard treatment.

A phase III trial demonstrated a 52% risk reduction of central nervous system disease progression, or death, in patients treated with Tagrisso compared to current standard-of-care EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor.

The trial's full results were published online today in the New England Journal of Medicine.
