Angiotech Pharmaceuticals announces FDA approval of TAXUS(R) Liberte(R) Long Stent
Date:7/16/2009

the TAXUS Express Stent (3.5% vs. 9.4%, p=0.0426). The rate of stent thrombosis at two years was zero percent for the TAXUS Liberte Long Stent and 0.8 percent for the TAXUS Express Stent(2).

"Today's approval of the TAXUS Liberte Long Stent, along with the approval of the TAXUS Liberte Atom(TM) Stent in May, demonstrates the strength and breadth of the paclitaxel platform," said Dr. William Hunter, President and CEO of Angiotech. "We are pleased with the progress that Boston Scientific continues to make with TAXUS stents."

Boston Scientific has the industry's widest range of coronary stent sizes. The TAXUS Liberte Stent Series is now available in 92 sizes, ranging from 2.25 mm to 4.0 mm in diameter and from 8 mm to 38 mm in length.

TAXUS Stents have been evaluated by the industry's most extensive randomized, controlled clinical trial program, with follow-up to five years in some cases. These trial results have been supplemented by data on more than 35,000 patients enrolled in post-approval registries. To date, approximately 11 million Boston Scientific stents have been implanted globally, making them the world's most frequently used stents.

    (1) Percentage estimates from April 2009 Millennium Research Group report
        and ARRIVE 1 and 2 registries.

    (2) In the TAXUS ALTAS Long Lesion Trial, the TAXUS Liberte Long (38mm)
        Stent met its primary endpoint of non-inferiority to the TAXUS
        Express control Stent in nine-month percent diameter stenosis (31.7%
        vs. 32.6%, p=0.71) and reported a 36 percent reduction in
        MACE (9.4% vs. 14.8%, p=0.16).
