Two-year data for Angiotech's Vascular Wrap Paclitaxel-Eluting Mesh,to be Presented at European Vascular Symposium

STRASBOURG, France and VANCOUVER, April 26, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Angiotech Pharmaceuticals, Inc. , a global specialty pharmaceutical and medical device company, announced that the two-year data from its European pivotal trial examining the Vascular Wrap(TM) Paclitaxel-Eluting Mesh ("Vascular Wrap(TM)") will be presented today at a scientific forum in Europe. The two-year study examined the safety and efficacy of the Vascular Wrap(TM) for use in arterial bypass surgery in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Dr. Lajos Matyas is presenting the results at the 2007 European Symposium of Vascular Biomaterials (ESVB) in Strasbourg, France.

"We are pleased to have this opportunity to present these encouraging results from our two-year European Vascular Wrap(TM) study to the physicians, researchers and other healthcare professionals at ESVB," said Dr. Rui Avelar, Chief Medical Officer at Angiotech.

"The results of this 109-patient study suggest that the Vascular Wrap(TM) combined with an ePTFE graft may be a promising future therapy option for patients with PAD who require arterial bypass surgery," said Dr. Lajos Matyas, a lead investigator based in Miskolc, Hungary, who enrolled the highest number of patients out of the nine clinical centres in Europe involved in the study.

Angiotech initially released the results from the two-year Vascular Wrap(TM) study in November 2006. The objectives of this two-year study were to assess the safety and clinical performance of the Vascular Wrap(TM) in combination with an ePTFE vascular graft following surgery to treat patients suffering from advanced peripheral arterial disease in their lower limbs. The Vascular Wrap(TM) in combination with an ePTFE graft was compared to a control group of patients that received standard of care - an ePTFE graft alone. Some of the highlights of the two-year study that will be presented at ESVB include:
