PRESS RELEASE

Elixir Medical Corporation to Showcase a Live Case Demonstration of the Breakthrough Fully Bioresorbable DESolve® 100 Novolimus Eluting Coronary Scaffold System at EuroPCR

Elixir Symposium with Key Thought Leaders Scheduled for May 21

Sunnyvale, CAMay 14, 2014—Elixir Medical Corporation, a developer of products that combine state-of-the-art medical devices with advanced pharmaceuticals, announced today that it will showcase a live case demonstration of its breakthrough DESolve® 100 Novolimus Eluting Bioresorbable Coronary Scaffold System at EuroPCR in Paris on Tuesday, May 20th 2014. EuroPCR is the official annual meeting of the European Association for Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions.

Elixir Medical recently announced CE Mark approval for DESolve 100, the world’s first fully bioresorbable scaffold with a dramatically thinner strut profile of 100µm (one hundred microns), which is designed to degrade within one year, returning the patients’ coronary vessel ultimately to its normal de novo state while providing market-leading deliverability and conformability. DESolve 100 is designed to make scaffolds more user-friendly, enabling cardiologists to address the needs of a broader patient population.

Dr. Stefan Verheye, M.D., Ph.D., ZNA Middleheim Hospital, Antwerp, Belgium, will be performing the live case demonstration of the DESolve 100 in his cardiac catherization lab in Belgium that will be streamed live to the audience in Theater Bleu at EuroPCR.

Elixir will also announce additional data on its drug eluting stent platforms during the conference along with an update on trials for DESolve family of scaffolds.  Following are some of the highlights of Elixir Medical’s programs and activities at the EuroPCR conference (in chronological order) at the Palais Des Congres de Paris in Central European Summer Time (CEST):
