new drug for intermittent claudication

You'll hear about a new drug for intermittent claudication...Pletal (PLAY-tal, cilostazol) from Pharmacia & Upjohn.

It's being introduced now in the U.S...later in Canada.

Pletal seems more effective than Trental (pentoxifylline)...to increase the distance patients can walk without pain.
