Pascal Soriot, Chief Executive Officer, commenting on the results said:

“Our performance in the first half was in line with expectations as we experience the loss of exclusivity of Crestor and Seroquel XR in the US. We continued to deliver transformative science across the pipeline, particularly in Oncology. Imfinzi was launched in bladder cancer while we published practice-changing data in breast cancer for Lynparza, our first-in-class PARP inhibitor. In lung cancer, we strengthened our unique portfolio focused on both the genetic drivers of disease and immunotherapy. In the first half, we shared positive results for Imfinzi in the PACIFIC trial and reported more encouraging data for Tagrisso in patients with central nervous system metastases.

“I’m excited about our pipeline-driven transformation as we continue to deliver for shareholders on our strategy to return to sustainable long-term growth. In a pivotal year for AstraZeneca, we remain focused on realising the potential of our pipeline, growing our new launch medicines and bringing our strong science to patients.”
