Clinical Data Reinforce Safety and Efficacy of Boston Scientific's Two Drug- Eluting Stent Platforms
Date:3/29/2009

NATICK, Mass. and ORLANDO, Fla., March 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today welcomed three-year results from the SPIRIT II Clinical Trial and a pooled meta-analysis of two-year data from the SPIRIT II and III Trials. SPIRIT II and SPIRIT III are prospective, randomized, non-inferiority trials with 300 and 1,002 patients respectively, designed to compare the safety and efficacy of the PROMUS(R) (XIENCE V(TM)) Everolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent to Boston Scientific's first-generation TAXUS(R) Express2(TM) Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent. SPIRIT II three-year results were presented by Patrick W. Serruys, M.D., Ph.D, and the two-year meta-analysis was presented by Yoshinobu Onuma, M.D., at the 58th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology.

The two-year pooled meta-analysis was intended to estimate the incidence of low frequency events or outcomes in key subgroups, and included 892 patients randomized to the PROMUS (XIENCE V) Stent and 410 patients treated with the TAXUS Stent. While overall pooled results and some subgroups at two years favored the PROMUS (XIENCE V) Stent for rates of Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE), the MACE results in patients with diabetes favored the TAXUS Stent.

"Clinical data presented at ACC continue to reinforce the value of Boston Scientific's two-drug portfolio," said Keith D. Dawkins, M.D., Associate Chief Medical Officer of Boston Scientific. "While the PROMUS (XIENCE V) Stent performed well against the TAXUS Stent in the meta-analysis, it is important to note that 96 percent of the control patients received the TAXUS Express Stent, making the comparison almost entirely based on our first-generation technology. Of particular interest is the subgroup data on diabetics given the recent discussion in scientific journal
