Boston Scientific's TAXUS® Element™ Stent Demonstrates Strong Outcomes in Diabetic Patients
Date:9/22/2010

NATICK, Mass., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced results from an analysis of 1,166 patients from its PERSEUS clinical program comparing the performance of the TAXUS® Element™ Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System in diabetic versus non-diabetic patients.  Results demonstrated that despite the known increased risk of restenosis for diabetics versus non-diabetics in patients undergoing coronary revascularization, the TAXUS Element Stent had comparable levels of target lesion revascularization (TLR) and late loss in both diabetic and non-diabetic patients.  Analysis of the data was presented by Louis A. Cannon, M.D., of the Cardiac and Vascular Research Center of Northern Michigan in Petoskey, Michigan, and Co-Principal Investigator of the PERSEUS clinical program, at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation's annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics scientific symposium in Washington, D.C.  

"The PERSEUS diabetic subset data showed that the TAXUS Element Stent mitigated the impact of diabetes as a risk factor for restenosis following stenting procedures in the patients studied," said Dr. Cannon.  "At one year, no significant differences in measures of stent efficacy were observed between the two patient groups.  Diabetic status was not a predictor of re-intervention in patients treated with the TAXUS Element Stent."

The PERSEUS diabetic analysis included clinical outcomes at one year among 314 diabetic patients and 852 non-diabetic patients treated with the TAXUS Element Stent from the PERSEUS Workhorse and Small Vessel clinical trials.  Due to significant disparity in baseline characteristics between diabetic and non-diabetic patients, propensity score analysis was used to allow for adjustment of baseline differences (other than the presence of diabetes) between t
