Abbott Announces Continued Positive Results with Xience V,Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent in Spirit Clinical Trials

SPIRIT FIRST Demonstrates Continued Safety for XIENCE V with No Late Stent Thrombosis or Additional Major Adverse Cardiac Events Out to Three Years

BARCELONA, Spain, May 22, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Three-year data from the SPIRIT FIRST trial demonstrated no additional Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE), and no late stent thrombosis in patients treated with either Abbott's XIENCE(TM) V Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent System or its MULTI-LINK VISION(R) metallic coronary stent. Additionally, data presented from a meta- (combined) analysis of SPIRIT II and SPIRIT III trials at nine months reaffirmed the superiority of Abbott's XIENCE V compared to the TAXUS(R) paclitaxel-eluting coronary stent system in a variety of measures.

These data were presented today at the EuroPCR meeting in Barcelona.

"The SPIRIT FIRST results support the long-term safety of the XIENCE V system, with no additional MACE or late stent thrombosis, by both protocol and ARC definitions, out to three years," said Gregg W. Stone, M.D., of Medical Center and the Cardiovascular Research Foundation, New York, and an investigator in the SPIRIT trials. "In addition, a meta-analysis of the SPIRIT II and III data again demonstrated the superiority of the XIENCE V system to the TAXUS system in important measures that matter to patients including renarrowing of a treated vessel and major adverse cardiac events."

A meta-analysis of approximately 1,300 patients from the SPIRIT II and SPIRIT III clinical trials conducted by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation indicated that the XIENCE V system demonstrated superiority over the TAXUS stent in angiographic (imaging) and clinical endpoints, with an excellent safety profile.

Specifically, data from the meta-analysis demonstrated that the XIENCE V Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent System was superior to the TAXUS stent in:
