What's the duration of the wizard level 5 attack power, Savage Transformation?

The card reads:

Hit: 2d8 + Intelligence modifier damage, and you partially transform the target's mind and body into that of a savage monster (save ends). Until this transformation ends, the target must make an opportunity attack against any creature that willingly leaves a square adjacent to it, and if any creature ends its turn adjacent to the target, the target must use a free action to deal damage to that creature equal to 5 +your Intelligence modifier.

…but there's no mention of the duration!

Thanks in advance.

The power lasts until the target makes a successful saving throw, as per the quoted text, or the character dies.

It should be noted that no 4th Edition powers (at least, to my knowledge) have a specific duration beyond "until the start of your next turn." Everything that doesn't last for a single turn uses "save ends" instead, or allows you end the effect whenever you chose (such as stances). – Mike Riverso Apr 27 '12 at 18:00
