Stomach cancer, also called gastric cancer, is a malignant tumor arising from the lining of the stomach.

About 90% to 95% of cancers of the stomach are adenocarcinomas. When the term stomach cancer or gastric cancer is used, it almost always refers to an adenocarcinoma. These cancers develop from the cells that form the innermost lining of the stomach (known as the mucosa).

Gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in the world, and it remains difficult to cure in Western countries, primarily because most patients present with advanced disease. In the United States, stomach malignancy is currently the 14th most common cancer.

LLY reported that the FDA has approved CYRAMZA(NYSE:TM) (ramucirumab) as a single-agent treatment for patients with advanced or metastatic gastric cancer or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma with disease progression on or after prior fluoropyrimidine- or platinum-containing chemotherapy.

With this approval, CYRAMZA becomes the first FDA-approved treatment for patients in this setting.

LLY also announced an agreement to acquire Novartis Animal Health for approximately $5.4 billion in an all-cash transaction that will strengthen and diversify LLY's own animal health business, Elanco.

Upon completion of the acquisition, LLY's Elanco will be the second-largest animal health company in terms of global revenue, will solidify its number two ranking in the U.S., and improve its position in Europe and the rest of the world.

LLY is a global healthcare leader that unites caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world.
