Cook Medical Provides Patient-Level Paclitaxel Data From Randomised Control Trial

LIMERICK, Ireland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This week, Cook Medical made patient-level data from the Zilver® PTX®
randomised control trial (RCT) available by request on cookmedical.com.
Cook provides this data to encourage further collaboration with
researchers to benefit patients with peripheral arterial disease.

“We will continue to support our customers and their patients by
sharing what we’ve discovered from our research and data in the area of
paclitaxel,” said Mark Breedlove, vice president of Cook Medical’s
Vascular Division.

Cook’s Zilver PTX RCT followed 479 patients over five years in the US,
Germany, and Japan. Cook is the first company with paclitaxel devices to
make de-identified patient-level data on these devices publicly
available. To ensure privacy and confidentiality of the patients
involved, Cook has reviewed the data provided and de-identified it as
necessary to mitigate identification risk. The data is intended for
non-commercial research purposes only and will be provided at no charge.
