The aim of this trial was to assess the activity of indobufen compared with placebo in peripheral occlusive arterial disease of the lower limbs of atherosclerotic or diabetic origin. Fifty-two outpatients were admitted to the randomized, double-blind study and were given either an indobufen 200-mg tablet (28 subjects) or placebo (24) for six months. Painfree walking distance on a treadmill at a constant speed (4 km/h) and slope (10°) was assessed before and after three and six months' treatment. The painfree walking distance before treatment with indobufen or placebo averaged 153 ± 23.02 (mean ± SE) and 199 ± 30.58 (mean ± SE) meters respectively. After six months' treatment with active drug or placebo, this parameter reached 610 ± 115.36 (p < 0.01) and 243 ± 32.49 (p > 0.05) meters respectively. The difference between the two treatments was statistically significant in favor of indobufen (p lt; 0.01 Dunn's test).
