IRVINE, Calif., May 13, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- SmallCap Sentinel announced today the availability of information outlining work by a biotech company developing technology to increase the safety and effectiveness of drug-coated cardiovascular stents. The announcement, through financial courier StockUpTicks.com, comes in the wake of the publication of results of a research study in one of the nation's most respected medical journals, which examined the performance of drug-coated stents in cardiovascular disease patients. The study, recently reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), confirmed findings of prior research indicating that commonly used drug-coated stents cause a much higher rate of complications and death than previously thought. The report further validates the importance of research by stent technology companies toward creation of improved technology, in particular the need for stents that demonstrate improved biocompatibility.
