of MACE at one year. For the SPIRIT V trial, MACE is defined as a composite of cardiac death, heart attack (myocardial infarction not clearly attributed to a non-target vessel), or TLR.

In September 2009, data from the company's SPIRIT IV trial comparing XIENCE V to TAXUS will be presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics annual meeting. With 3,690 patients, the SPIRIT IV trial is one of the largest head-to-head randomized clinical trials between two drug eluting stents and includes more than 1,000 patients with diabetes.

More About XIENCE V

XIENCE V is used to treat coronary artery disease by propping open a narrowed or blocked artery and releasing the drug, everolimus, in a controlled manner to prevent the artery from becoming blocked again following a stent procedure. XIENCE V is built upon Abbott's market-leading bare metal stent, the MULTI-LINK VISION(R) Coronary Stent System. The VISION platform is designed to facilitate ease of delivery, making it easier for physicians to maneuver the stent and treat the diseased portion of the artery.

The XIENCE V drug coated stent will be available in China on the rapid exchange (RX) delivery system. Rapid exchange is the most widely used type of delivery system because it provides physicians additional flexibility to work as single operators during stent procedures.

Abbott's market-leading XIENCE V drug eluting stent is marketed in the United States, Europe and other international markets. XIENCE V is an investigational device in Japan and is currently under review by Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency.

Everolimus, developed by Novartis Pharma AG, is a proliferation signal inhibitor, or mTOR inhibitor, licensed to Abbott by Novartis for use on its drug eluting stents. Everolimus has been shown to inhibit in-stent neointimal growth i
