TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ABILITY DIABETES-GLOBAL (ADG), is the World’s largest Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) for patients with DM (Diabetes Mellitus), evaluating head-to-head the Sirolimus eluting stent , Abluminus DES+ (Concept Medical Inc.) with the XIENCE household of DES (Abbott Cardiovascular).
Diabetes has been the Achilles heel for any vascular interventional procedures and there’s a scientific want for adequately powered RCTs. The potential, randomized, open-label, 2-arm parallel-group RCT has enrolled a mammoth 3050 diabetic patients. The RCT is steered by Prof. Roxana Mehran (Chairperson), Prof. Marie-Claude Morice (Medical Director), Prof. Alexandre Abizaid, Prof. Antonio Colombo & Prof. Shigeru Saito (Principal Investigators).
The main endpoints of the deliberate RCT are TLF (composite of cardiac loss of life, MI or ischemia-pushed TLR) powered for non-inferiority and ischemia-pushed TLR at 1- yr FU powered for non-inferiority and sequential superiority for diabetic patients.
“In the face of the pandemic, the completion of enrollment of the ABILITY DM study marks an important milestone in the largest ever prospective randomized clinical trial in patients with Diabetes Mellitus. This signifies a crucial juncture in providing real-time and current evidence with Abluminus DES+ (with DCB) technology pitched against the best-in-class DES,” mirrored Roxana Mehran.
Prof. Antonio Colombo shares related sentiments. “We completed enrollment of a landmark trial. The first trial comparing two different DES in 3050 diabetics. The results will be a benchmark for any new or old PCI technology,” he stated.
“I would like to thank all the site investigators, operators, technicians, and study coordinators, the Cardiovascular European Research Center (CERC), and Mount Sinai and ICAHN School of Medicine who played a stellar role in achieving this,” exuded Prof. Marie-Claude Morice (CERC), “in particular the CERC and Mount Sinai research team who conducted the trial so well at such a complex time; their commitment is unique and will contribute to the success of the trial, a potentially significant improvement for Diabetic patients with cardiovascular disease”.
Instituto Dante Pazzanese de Cardiologia (Brazil) led by Dr Daniel Chamié, and the National Heart Foundation Hospital & Research Centre (Bangladesh), led by Dr Fazila Malik, performed a significant position in finishing the enrollment adopted by OLVG (The Netherlands) led by Dr Maarten Vink.
Abluminus DES+ (Concept Medical Inc.), which has regulatory approvals in Europe and different international locations, makes use of a proprietary Envisolution know-how to offer homogenous drug supply by coating the stent floor and uncovered elements of the balloon and on the edges of the balloon. In scientific research carried out at different facilities Abluminus DES+ has confirmed efficient in managing patients with DM.
Prof. Alexandre Abizaid, who has extensively used the product, “I would like to congratulate Concept Medical and all the investigators for completing the largest randomized trial in PCI for diabetic patients. This 3000-patient trial tested a novel DES technology called Abluminus which is the combination of a Sirolimus eluting stent crimped on a drug coated balloon. This is certainly a landmark study in the modern era of complex coronary intervention”.
