Largest Study to Date Shows Significant Reductions in Risks of Blood Clots and Reintervention With CYPHER(R) Sirolimus-eluting Coronary Stent Compared to Taxus Stent

et lesion revacularization or TLR).

According to this comprehensive analysis of all head-to-head clinical studies between the CYPHER(R) Stent and the Taxus Stent, a blood clot (stent thrombosis) is 34 percent less likely to form in patients implanted with the CYPHER(R) Stent than in patients who receive the Taxus Stent -- a statistically significant difference [hazard ratio (HR) 0.66, 95 percent confidence interval (CI) 0.46 to 0.94, p=0.02]. In addition, the CYPHER(R) Stent significantly lowered the risk of reintervention by 26 percent versus the Taxus Stent (HR 0.74, CI 0.63 to 0.87, p<0.001).

While the overall risk of death was not significantly different between the two drug-eluting stents (HR 0.92, CI 0.74 to 1.13, p=0.43), the authors of the meta-analysis identified a trend toward a lower risk of heart attack with the CYPHER(R) Stent versus the Taxus Stent (HR 0.84, CI 0.69 to 1.03, p=0.10), especially after the first year of follow-up.

Events occurring after the first year of stent placement have fueled the discussion surrounding the safety of drug-eluting stents. When only patient- level data were used, the authors were able to assess the occurrence of events after the first year of follow-up. In this analysis, there was a significant 70 percent reduction in blood clots (p=0.004) and a 55 percent reduction in repeat heart attacks (p=0.006) in patients who received the CYPHER(R) Stent compared to patients implanted with a Taxus Stent.

"This meta-analysis substantially enriches the large body of evidence that interventional cardiologists have at their disposal to make the right choice for their patients," said David E. Kandzari, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.S.C.A.I, Chief Medical Officer, Cordis Corporation. "Drug-eluting stents, like the CYPHER(R) Stent, continue to provide significant benefits for patients with coronary artery disease."

For this analysis of randomized controlled trials, the gold standard of clinical evidence in medicine, i
