er in Cincinnati, Ohio and a principal investigator for the TAXUS PERSEUS clinical trial evaluating the TAXUS Element Stent. "The Element Stent series is intended to provide a full range of DES solutions for interventional cardiologists, giving them the option to treat patients with a paclitaxel, everolimus or bare-metal stent. In my experience, the TAXUS Element Stent is a highly deliverable and conformable platform that has the potential to simplify complex procedures and improve outcomes."

"Our platinum chromium Element Stent series represents a significant leap forward in drug-eluting stent innovation," said David McFaul, Boston Scientific Senior Vice President, International. "This breakthrough technology combines a new alloy designed for coronary stenting, an innovative stent design and a new delivery system."

The TAXUS Element Stent System is currently being studied in the PERSEUS clinical trial program, which compares the TAXUS Element Stent System to the TAXUS(R) Express2(R) Stent System. The program includes the PERSEUS Workhorse and the PERSEUS Small Vessel arms. Both have finished recruiting patients and are estimated to be completed by the end of the year. The PROMUS Element Stent System is currently being studied in the PLATINUM clinical trial program, which compares the PROMUS Element Stent System to the PROMUS(R) Stent System, and is actively enrolling patients in the U.S., Europe and Japan.

While the Element Stent platform represents Boston Scientific's third-generation DES technology, the Company's fourth-generation DES is currently under development. Initial clinical data were presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics scientific symposium in 2008; global pivotal trials are expected to begin in 2010. This DES employs the Labcoat technology, which has an ultra thin biodegradable abluminal polymer that delivers a very low dose of paclitaxel to the wall of the treated vessel, and no polymer or drug on
