Probucol was initially designed as lipid-lowering drug but was never established in the clinic since it also exhibits HDL-lowering effects.
Efflux values are given as a percentage of total cell cholesterol and the contribution of pathways in the original studies was estimated using inhibitors of ABCA1 and SR-BI (probucol and BLT-1), if other is not mentioned.
The polymer-free stent platform consists of a premounted, thin strut (50/60 [micro]m) cobaltchromium stent whose abluminal surface only is sandblasted to permit a microporous surface for the polymer-free matrix consisting of sirolimus and probucol. Sirolimus with a concentration of 1.2 [micro]g/[mm.sup.2] is available on the abluminal stent surface only.
