15:02 EDTMDTMedtronic says results from CRYSTAL AF trial met primary endpoint
Medtronic announced results from the CRYSTAL AF Clinical Trial, which found that continuous cardiac monitoring with the Reveal XT Insertable Cardiac Monitor was superior to standard care at detecting atrial fibrillation in patients who have had strokes of undetermined causes. Presented at a late-breaking science session at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference, the randomized, global study met its primary endpoint by demonstrating that continuous monitoring with the Reveal ICM discovered AF in 6.4 times more patients than standard care at six months (p=0.0006). In addition, the Trial found that compared to standard care (including electrocardiograms, Holter monitors and other short-term diagnostic tests prescribed over the follow-up period), the Reveal ICM detected AF in 7.3 times more patients at 12 months (p<0.0001), and 8.8 times more patients at 36 months (p<0.0001). When followed for 36 months, 30 percent of the patients in the ICM arm had AF detected.

06:52 EDTMDTFormer official says Obama could limit inversion deals, NY Times reports
President Obama could limit tax inversion deals on his own authority, said Stephen Shay, former deputy assistant Treasury secretary for international tax affairs in the Obama administration, according to The New York Times. A 1969 law gives the president the ability to restrict inversion deals, said Shay, who also worked in the Reagan administration, the newspaper stated. Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott (ABT), Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV) and Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Alletgan (AGN).
