or efficacy measures when compared to a bare-metal stent in patients with AMI, while demonstrating a comparable safety profile," said Gregg W. Stone, M.D., Professor of Medicine and the Director of Research and Education at the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at the Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Principal Investigator of the trial.

"This is the first prospective, global randomized clinical trial sufficiently powered to provide conclusive data comparing DES and BMS in heart attack patients," continued Dr. Stone. "The findings from the HORIZONS AMI trial should have a major impact on how decisions are made regarding the use of drug-eluting stents in these high-risk patients during the early hours of a heart attack. This study provides much needed data, and the patients in this trial will be followed for five years to determine if these favorable results are maintained."

"Boston Scientific is proud to support this and other large clinical trials that provide the medical community with relevant data that can be used in combination with broader clinical judgment to develop optimal treatment strategies for challenging patient subsets," said Donald S. Baim, M.D., Chief Medical and Scientific Officer of Boston Scientific. "The HORIZONS AMI trial provides valuable insight into the benefits of the TAXUS paclitaxel-eluting stent compared to bare-metal stents, in this important high-risk AMI patient population."

One-year results from the HORIZONS AMI trial showed ischemia-driven TLR was reduced by 41 percent with DES compared to BMS (4.5% vs. 7.5%, p=0.002), with parallel reduction in ischemia-driven target vessel revascularization (TVR) among patients treated with DES (5.8% vs. 8.7%, p=0.006). Angiographic follow-up at 13 months was available for 910 DES patients (1,081 lesions) and 293 BMS patients (332 lesions), and showed a 56 percent reduction in the secon
