Research & Development

Working to deliver tomorrow’s products, today

Twelve-month results from the first human trial of our BioFreedom polymer-free drug-coated stent were presented at TCT in September 2010, demonstrating equivalent safety and efficacy to a conventional DES with durable polymer. Patients receiving BioFreedom exhibited a similar degree of in-stent late lumen loss to those receiving Boston Scientific’s Taxus® Liberté® (p = 0.001), with a trend toward superiority (p = 0.11). There was no evidence of stent thrombosis.

BioFreedom represents the latest development in Biosensors’ stent technology, featuring a micro-structured abluminal surface which permits the controlled release of our proprietary Biolimus A9™ drug without the use of a polymer. Due to the absence of polymer coating, we believe that BioFreedom will promote more rapid vessel healing and reduce the need for longer term anti-platelet therapy. We are now in the process of planning larger studies with longer-term follow-up to further investigate this exciting development.
