Boston Scientific Welcomes Publication of HORIZONS AMI Trial Results in New England Journal of Medicine
Date:5/6/2009

Data from landmark trial provide important insight for physicians in treating heart attack patients

NATICK, Mass., May 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today welcomed the publication of results from the HORIZONS AMI trial in this week's issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The HORIZONS AMI trial, sponsored by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation with research grant support from Boston Scientific and The Medicines Company (Nasdaq: MDCO), is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the TAXUS(R) Express2(TM) Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System compared to bare-metal stenting in patients undergoing catheter treatment for an acute myocardial infarction (AMI), or heart attack.

With more than 3,000 patients enrolled worldwide, HORIZONS AMI is the largest randomized trial to compare the use of drug-eluting stents (DES) to bare-metal stents (BMS) for the treatment of heart attack patients, a complicated patient population with known increased risks of death and stent thrombosis. The one-year results demonstrated that the TAXUS Express Stent significantly reduced angiographic restenosis and the primary efficacy endpoint of ischemia-driven target lesion revascularization (TLR, or rate of re-intervention of the stented segment) compared to an otherwise identical bare-metal Express(R) Stent control. The primary safety measure showed no difference between the TAXUS Express Stent and the bare-metal Express Stent in overall major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), or its components, including death, repeat heart attack, stroke or stent thrombosis at one year.

"The HORIZONS AMI trial provided outcomes data showing treatment with a TAXUS paclitaxel-eluting stent had superi
