Title:
Vascular healing in drug-eluting stents: differential drug-associated response of limus-eluting stents in a preclinical model of stent implantation. 
Abstract:
We aimed to assess the influence of different sirolimus analogues released from a uniform stent platform on re-endothelialisation and vascular healing responses.Bare metal stents (BMS) were coated with a fluoropolymer containing everolimus (EES), sirolimus (SES) or zotarolimus (ZES) to generate drug-eluting stents (DES) with identical stent backbones, drug loads and release kinetics. DES constructs and control BMS were implanted into the iliac arteries of rabbits and were analysed at 14 days by...    »
