Medtech in Ireland -- Turning Green into Gold

Despite the recent downturn in the national economy, Ireland's medical device community is on the verge of a major growth spurt.

The second of a two-part series.

Boston Scientific Looks to Next-Generation DES with Labcoat Deal

Boston Scientific's unique two-drug strategy has propelled the company to a leadership position in drug-eluting stents with, according to some estimates, more than 50% of the market. Yet the company is not relying on the current configurations of or the current manufacturing approaches for its Taxus (using paclitaxel) and Promus (which employs everolimus) stents to sustain its position on top of this highly competitive product area. With its acquisition this month of Galway, Ireland-based Labcoat Ltd. (terms of which were not disclosed), BSC is laying the groundwork for technology that may well define its next generation of drug-eluting stents.
