Interim Analysis of Data from e-HEALING Registry of OrbusNeich's Genous(TM) Bio-engineered R stent(TM) to be Presented at AHA Scientific Sessions 2008
Date:11/7/2008

Sigmund Silber to Highlight 12-Month Patient Subset Results in Oral

Presentation

HONG KONG, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- An interim analysis of 12-month patient subset data from e-HEALING, a global post-marketing surveillance registry of OrbusNeich's Genous Bio-engineered R stent, will be presented next week at the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions 2008 in New Orleans.

Sigmund Silber, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.E.S.C., a professor of medicine with the Cardiology Practice and Hospital, Munich, will present the data at 9:30 a.m. CST on Nov. 12 in Auditorium C at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Silber and Robbert de Winter, M.D., Ph.D., F.E.S.C., a professor of medicine with the Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, are the co-principal investigators of e-HEALING.

OrbusNeich's e-HEALING is a multi-center, worldwide (outside the United States) prospective registry with 5,000 enrolled patients treated with the Genous Bio-engineered R stent. The study protocol recommends that patients receive one month of clopidogrel treatment after the procedure. Clinical follow-up takes place at 30 days, six months and 12 months. The primary endpoint of the registry is target vessel failure at 12 months.

Unlike drug-eluting stents, Genous, which is coated with an antibody, captures a patient's endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) to accelerate the natural healing process. EPCs circulate in the bloodstream and are involved in the repair of blood vessels. When attracted to the surface of Genous, EPCs rapidly form an endothelial layer over the stent that provides protection against thrombus and minimizes restenosis.

OrbusNeich designs, develops, manufactures and markets innovative medical devices for the treatment of vascular diseases. The company's product portfolio includes the Genous Bio-engineered R stent, an antibody-coated device that is the first-ever stent to capture a patient's endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) to accelerate the natural healing process following placement. Other products are stents, balloons and guiding catheters marketed under the names of Blazer(TM), R stent(TM), Scoreflex(TM), Sapphire(TM), Sapphire(TM) NC, Avita(TM), Avita HP(TM), SafeCut(TM), Lumina(TM) and Saffron.

A global company, OrbusNeich is headquartered in Hong Kong and has operations in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Hoevelaken, The Netherlands; Tokyo; and Shenzhen, China. OrbusNeich, which has provided cardiology devices to physicians through its predecessor companies since 1979, today supplies products to interventional cardiologists in more than 60 countries.
