HORIZONS AMI Trial Demonstrates Superior Outcomes with TAXUS(R) Drug-Eluting Stents in Heart Attack Patients
Date:10/15/2008

Landmark trial provides new insight for physicians

NATICK, Mass. and WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced results from an analysis of the HORIZONS AMI trial. The HORIZONS AMI trial, sponsored by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) with research grant support from Boston Scientific and The Medicines Company (Nasdaq: MDCO) is designed to determine the safety and efficacy of the TAXUS(R) Express2(TM) Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System compared to bare-metal stenting in patients experiencing an acute myocardial infarction (AMI), commonly referred to as a heart attack. With 3,006 patients enrolled globally, the HORIZONS AMI trial will provide the medical community with critical data from one of the largest randomized clinical trials ever performed in patients with heart attacks. Heart attack patients are often treated with bare-metal stents and are a more complicated patient population at higher risk of death. Analysis of the data was presented at CRF's 20th annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium in Washington, D.C.

"In the HORIZONS AMI trial, the outcomes provide definitive evidence that, in patients with AMI, drug-eluting stents were superior in efficacy to bare-metal stents and had a comparable safety profile at one year," said Gregg W. Stone, M.D., CRF Chairman, Professor of Medicine and the Director of Research and Education at the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at Ne
