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

ng the Chicago Innovation Award is a great testament to our constant pursuit of innovation, which is driven by finding meaningful solutions -- like XIENCE V -- for the patients who rely on us."

Sponsored by Kuczmarski and Associates and BusinessWeek, the Chicago Innovation Awards create awareness of the contributions of Chicago-area companies and organizations in developing innovative products and services that uniquely fill unmet needs and change lives. Abbott and other awardees will be recognized at a ceremony and reception tonight at the Goodman Theatre attended by approximately 800 local business, academic and government leaders.

About XIENCE V

XIENCE V is built upon Abbott's market-leading bare metal stent, the MULTI-LINK VISION(R) Coronary Stent System. The VISION platform has the thinnest stent structure available and is designed to facilitate ease of delivery, making it easier for physicians to maneuver the stent and treat the diseased portion of the artery.

Long-term results with XIENCE V in the SPIRIT III pivotal U.S. clinical trial demonstrated a 45 percent reduction in the risk of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) compared to the TAXUS(R) paclitaxel-eluting coronary stent system at two years. XIENCE V demonstrated a 32 percent reduction in target vessel failure (TVF, cardiac events related to the stented vessel) compared to TAXUS at two years. XIENCE V also demonstrated a low rate of stent thrombosis between one and two years, defined as very late stent thrombosis, per Academic Research Consortium (ARC) definition of definite/probable stent thrombosis (0.3 percent for XIENCE V and 1.0 percent for TAXUS). XIENCE V met its primary endpoint in the SPIRIT III clinical trial with a statistically significant 50 percent reduction in in-segment late loss (vessel renarrowing) at eight months compared to TAXUS.

The XIENCE V stent is available on both over-the-wire (OTW) and rapid exchange (RX) delivery systems. Rapid exchange i
