Positive Results of InspireMD's MASTER Trial to be Published on November 6 in Journal of American College of Cardiology
Date:11/5/2012

ates of restoring normal blood flow (TIMI-3 flow) (91.7% vs. 82.9%, P=0.006, a relative improvement of 10.6%); and (2) significantly less incomplete blood flow (TIMI-0/1 flow) post PCI (1.8% vs. 5.6%, P=0.01, a relative improvement of 67.9%).

Although the study's secondary endpoints were not powered for statistical significance, they showed positive trends.

-- The trial showed a trend toward lower mortality (0% vs. 1.9%, P=0.06) at 30 days and smaller infarct size as measured by post procedure cardiac MRI (17.1gr vs. 22.3gr, p=0.27) in the MGuard EPS arm versus control.

-- There was no difference between the groups in the secondary endpoint of myocardial blush grade, which is an angiographic measure of blood flow to the cardiac muscle (MBG2/3 83.9% vs. 84.7%, P=0.81).

The MASTER (MGuard for Acute ST Elevation Reperfusion) trial randomized 432 patients to MGuard EPS (217) and 216 to either bare metal stents (60%) or drug eluting stents (40%).  Fifty centers in nine countries participated in the trial. Patients are being followed for one year.

Dr. Stone, the study's chairman, is the Director of the Cardiovascular Research and Education Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center.

About Stenting and MGuard EPS

Standard stents weren't engineered for heart attack patients. They were designed for treating stable angina patients whose occlusion is different from that of an occlusion in a heart attack patient.

In acute heart attack patients, the plaque or thrombus is unstable and often breaks up as the stent is implanted causing downstream blockages (some of which can be fatal) in a significant portion of heart attack patients.

The MGuard EPS is integrated with a precisely engineered micro net mesh that prevents the unstable arterial plaque and thrombus (clots) that caused the heart attack blockage from breaking off.
