Abbott Announces Positive Data From ABSORB Trial on Its Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold Technology
Date:3/15/2010

ATLANTA, March 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT) today announced positive 30-day results from the first 101 patients enrolled in the second phase of the ABSORB trial.

These results build on the long-term success Abbott has seen with the BVS technology in the first phase of the ABSORB trial, which has generated positive data on 30 patients out to three years.
