ABSTRACT
The effect of tolbutamide in the treatment of symptomatic chronic occlusive arterial disease was studied in a double-blind design to neutralize the influence of the placebo effect. The constant speed treadmill was utilized to give a more accurate measure of the time elapsed before the appearance of intermittent claudication. No beneficial results were observed in 13 patients completing a 6-week period of therapy and a similar period of treatment with a placebo.
