JUPITER II: Double blind randomised comparison of JANUS Tacrolimus-eluting stent with the Tecnic Carbostent

06.09.2005


JUPITER II is an international multi-centre, double blind, randomized clinical trial designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of JANUS Tacrolimus-eluting Carbostent in the treatment of coronary lesions in “direct stenting” procedures as compared to TECNIC Carbostent. A total of 332 patients were enrolled in 16 European centers and randomized to either JANUS (166 patients) or TECNIC (166 patients). Enrolment was completed on 21 December 2004 and direct stenting was performed in 86.1% of procedures for Tecnic group and in 75.9% of procedures for Janus group. The complete six-month clinical data (160 patients in Tecnic group and 157 patients in Janus group) clearly highlight strong clinical efficacy and safety.



The study reported stent related MACE of 10.6% (17 TLR out of 160 patients) for the control Tecnic group and a more favourable rate of 6.4% (9 TLR and 1 MI out of 157 patients) for Janus group (ns). The 6 month clinical efficacy of Janus stent is expressed by a 46% reduction in TLR in respect to Tecnic stent (TLR of 5.7% with Janus versus 10.6% with Tecnic). The occurrence of MACE in Jupiter II study is mainly related to TLR, the incidence of events such as death, AMI or CABG is negligible.

The Janus stent also exhibits a high level of safety, as demonstrated by 0% stent thrombosis rate (sub-acute and late) in both groups, confirming all previous clinical results with Tecnic and other Carbofilm coated stents.


Analysis of the angiographic follow-up data is almost completed and I will be delighted to present them at TCT in Washington,” commented Dr. Marie-Claude Morice. “The complete six-month clinical results of Jupiter II demonstrate the excellent clinical outcome and safety profile for the JANUS polymer-free drug-eluting stent technology, as demonstrated by the low MACE rate with Janus and a 46% reduction of TLR of versus Tecnic”.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
