Amgen Inc., an independent biotechnology company, discovers, develops, manufactures, and delivers human therapeutics. Products Neulasta (pegfilgrastim)/NEUPOGEN(filgrastim) The company markets Neulasta, a pegylated protein based on the filgrastim molecule, primarily in the United States and Europe. Neulasta is indicated to decrease the incidence of infection associated with chemotherapy-induced febrile neutropenia in cancer patients with non-myeloid malignancies. In 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted approval of the Neulasta Delivery Kit, including the On-body Injector for Neulasta. The company markets NEUPOGEN, a recombinant-methionyl human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), primarily in the United States, Canada, and Europe. NEUPOGEN is used primarily in the indication for reducing the incidence of infection as manifested by febrile neutropenia for patients with non-myeloid malignancies undergoing myelosuppressive chemotherapy associated with a significant incidence of severe neutropenia with fever. Enbrel (etanercept) The company markets ENBREL primarily in the United States.

It is not indicated for the prevention of SREs in patients with multiple myeloma. XGEVA is used primarily in the indication for the prevention of SREs in adults with bone metastases from solid tumors. In the United States, Prolia is used primarily in the indication for the treatment of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at high risk for fracture, defined as a history of osteoporotic fracture, or multiple risk factors for fracture, or patients who have failed or are intolerant to other available osteoporosis therapy.

The majority of its sales are to two large dialysis providers. Aranesp (darbepoetin alfa) The company markets Aranesp primarily in Europe and in the United States. It is indicated for the treatment of anemia associated with CKD (in both patients on dialysis and patients not on dialysis) and the treatment of anemia due to concomitant myelosuppressive chemotherapy in patients with non-myeloid malignancies.
