Micell Technologies Reports Preclinical Data for MiStent™ Drug-Eluting Coronary Stent to be Presented at EuroPCR
Date:5/11/2011

DURHAM, N.C., May 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Micell Technologies, Inc. today announced that positive preclinical data will be presented at the EuroPCR conference in Paris, France on May 18, 2011 in a presentation titled, "MiStent DES: A Novel Third Generation DES with a Fully-absorbable Coating and Enhanced Drug Delivery Capabilities." The MiStent Drug-Eluting Coronary Stent System ("MiStent DES") is an ultra-thin, advanced alloy drug-eluting stent distinguished by a rapid-absorbing drug/polymer coating formulation.

In a porcine coronary model, data show continuous and controlled release of sirolimus, with the MiStent DES coating being eliminated from the stent within 45 to 60 days, and fully absorbed in the tissue by 90 days following implant. Preclinical studies additionally demonstrated a positive indication of safety with lower inflammation observed from the MiStent DES compared to the bare metal Abbott MULTI-LINK Vision™ Coronary Stent at 30 and 90 days in the challenging overlapping stents implant configuration.

James B. McClain, Ph.D., Senior Vice President of Micell, said, "Micell is uniting well-known DES stent components with a proprietary coating process to produce a fundamentally different DES. Our preclinical studies demonstrate a markedly consistent drug delivery profile with controlled, linear release of therapeutic levels of drug."

Clinical trials of the MiStent DES include DESSOLVE I, a study of 30 patients with documented stable or unstable angina pectoris or ischemia, which completed enrollment earlier this year. The primary endpoint is in-stent late lumen loss, as measured with angiography in treated de novo lesions ranging in diameter from 2.5 to 3.5 mm and amenable to treatment with a maximum 23 mm long stent. DESSOLVE II is an ongoing multi-center study of approximately 270 patients with documented stable or unstable angina pectoris or ischemia. The primary endpoint is superiority of MiStent DES in minimiz
