Brief Summary:
The BioNIR study aims to show that the BioNIR ridaforolimus eluting stent is non-inferior to the Resolute zotarolimus-eluting stent for the primary clinical endpoint of target lesion failure (TLF) at 12 months; that it is non-inferior to the Resolute for the secondary endpoint of angiographic in-stent late loss at 13 months; and that it is more cost-effective.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: BioNIR

The BioNIR Ridaforolimus Eluting Coronary Stent System is a single use device/drug combination product comprising:

  • Stent - a mounted Cobalt Chromium (CoCr) alloy based stent
  • Delivery System - Rapid Exchange (RX) Coronary System
  • Polymer matrix coating - Poly n-butyl methacrylate (PBMA) and CarboSil®
  • Ridaforolimus drug - CAS Registry Number: 572924-54-0

The drug Ridaforolimus is utilized on the stent system at a dose of 1.1 μg/mm2 (with a drug load of 100 μg per 2.75/3.00 x 17 mm stent).

Device: BioNIR
drug-eluting stent

Active Comparator: Resolute

The Endeavor Resolute Zotarolimus-Eluting Stent System consists of four subsystems:

  1. Endeavor Resolute Stent- a pre-mounted cobalt alloy based stent
  2. Delivery system (Rapid Exchange [RX] Coronary System)
  3. Polymer system
  4. Zotarolimus - drug The Resolute has a nominal drug dose of 1.6µg Zotarolimus per mm2 of the stent surface area.
Device: Resolute

  8. Target vessel related MI [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months, and 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 years ]
    Clinical: The number of patients who suffer a MI that is related to the target vessel of the procedure.

  9. Ischemia driven TLR [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months, and 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 years ]

  10. Ischemia driven TVR [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months, and 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 years ]

  11. Stent Thrombosis [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months, and 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 years ]
    Clinical: ARC definite and probable

  12. Angiographic Sub-Study: In-stent and in-segment late loss [ Time Frame: 13 months ]
    Secondary Endpoint for angiographic in-stent and in-segment late loss

  13. IVUS Sub-Study: In-stent percent neointimal hyperplasia [ Time Frame: 13 months ]
    IVUS: In-stent percent neointimal hyperplasia

  14. IVUS Sub-Study: Stent mal-apposition [ Time Frame: 13 months ]
    IVUS Sub-Study: Stent mal-apposition

  15. Lesion Success [ Time Frame: Determined at time of baseline procedure ]
    Measures whether the lesion was successfully treated.

  16. Procedure Success [ Time Frame: Determined at time of baseline procedure ]
    Acute clinical endpoint: The success of the procedure as determined at time of baseline procedure
