TAXUS(R) Stent Demonstrates Similar Outcomes in Diabetic Patients Compared to Non-diabetics in Pooled Analysis of TAXUS IV and V Trials
Date:4/1/2008

NATICK, Mass. and CHICAGO, April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced results from a pooled analysis of patients from its TAXUS IV and TAXUS V randomized clinical trials. The analysis compared the safety and efficacy of the TAXUS(R) Express(TM) Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System in diabetic versus non-diabetic patients. Results demonstrated that despite the known increased rates of mortality and restenosis for diabetics versus non-diabetics in patients with cardiovascular disease(1), the TAXUS Stent had comparable levels of late loss and target lesion revascularization (TLR) across these patient populations. The study also showed no significant differences in target vessel revascularization (TVR), stent thrombosis, or myocardial infarction (MI), after adjustments were made for differences in other baseline characteristics between patients with or without diabetes. Analysis of the data was presented by Gregg W. Stone, M.D., of the Columbia University Medical Center in New York, at the SCAI Annual Scientific Sessions in Partnership with the ACC/i2 Summit in Chicago.

"The TAXUS IV/V diabetic subset data indicated that the TAXUS Stent mitigated the impact of diabetes as a risk factor for restenosis following stenting procedures in the patients studied," said Dr. Stone. "Diabetic patients treated with TAXUS Stents compared to bare-metal stents had significantly improved event-free survival, particularly important in high-risk patients with diabetes."

The pooled analysis included angiographic outcomes at nine months and clinical outcomes at three years among 338 diabetic patients and 901 non-diabetic patients treated with the TAXUS Stent from the TAXUS IV and V clinical t
