Abbott's XIENCE V(TM) Drug Eluting Stent Wins Prestigious Chicago Innovation Award
Date:10/28/2008

Fourth Innovation Award for Abbott in Six Years Recognizes Breakthrough

Treatment for the Most Common Form of Heart Disease

ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott today announced it has received a 2008 Chicago Innovation Award for its XIENCE V(TM) Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent System. Based on the product's innovative design and strong clinical data, the next-generation drug eluting stent represents a significant advance in the treatment of coronary artery disease.

Abbott's XIENCE V stent was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and launched in July 2008, providing a new treatment option for the nearly 13 million Americans with coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. Stents are designed to prop open an artery that has become clogged by plaque build-up and restore blood flow to the heart. A drug eluting stent releases a medication (everolimus, in the case of XIENCE V) in a controlled manner to prevent the artery from becoming blocked again following a stent procedure. XIENCE V is the only drug eluting stent to demonstrate superiority over the previous market-leading drug eluting stent in two randomized, pivotal clinical trials -- and XIENCE V has become the market-leading drug eluting stent in just three months since launch.

This is the fourth Chicago Innovation Award that Abbott has received in six years. Most recently, the company's m2000(TM) molecular diagnostic instrument in combination with the RealTime HIV-1 viral load test received the honor in 2007. In 2005, the company's PathVysion(TM) breast cancer test received the honor, and in 2003, HUMIRA(TM), the first human monoclonal antibody drug for rheumatoid arthritis, won the award.

"At Abbott, we are proud to be in the business of developing innovative treatments that improve and save lives," said Miles D. White, chairman and chief executive officer, Abbott. "Receivi
