NATICK, Mass., July 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the PROMUS(TM) Everolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System for the treatment of coronary artery disease. The PROMUS Stent is a private-labeled XIENCE(TM) V Everolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System manufactured by Abbott and distributed by Boston Scientific under an agreement executed prior to the 2006 acquisition of the former Guidant Corporation by Boston Scientific. FDA approval clears the way for Boston Scientific to launch the PROMUS Stent immediately in the U.S.

The PROMUS Stent expands Boston Scientific's drug-eluting stent (DES) portfolio, which includes the TAXUS(R) Express2(R) Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System (in the U.S. and international markets) and the TAXUS(R) Liberte(R) Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System (in international markets), making Boston Scientific the only company to offer physicians the choice of two distinct drugs (paclitaxel and everolimus) on separate DES platforms.

"The PROMUS Stent has shown outstanding deliverability, low late loss and the potential to reduce the need for re-interventions," said Ted Feldman, M.D., F.S.C.A.I., Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Evanston Northwestern Healthcare in Evanston, Illinois.
