Date:1/26/2011

NATICK, Mass., Jan. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced the beginning of patient enrollment in the PLATINUM China clinical trial, which is designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Company's PROMUS Element™ Everolimus-Eluting Platinum Chromium Coronary Stent compared to the TAXUS® Liberte® Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent in the treatment of patients with a single de novo atherosclerotic lesion.  PLATINUM China is a prospective, randomized trial that will enroll 500 patients at 15 sites in China.  Clinical data from the trial will be used to support approval of the PROMUS Element Stent by the State Food and Drug Administration of the People's Republic of China.
