SIMPADICO was a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that enrolled 553 patients with claudication at 50 sites in Canada and the United States. The mean (±SD) patient age was 67±10 years; 72% were males. The duration of claudication was 6.0±6.1 years at entry; 91% had a history of smoking and 34% were current smokers; 36.5% had diabetes. Resting ABI was 0.59+0.14; baseline ICD was 132±104 and ACD 307±209 meters. Results showed that there was no increase in ACD or ICD at 26 weeks with immune modulation therapy (IMT using the Celacade™ system, Vasogen Inc.) compared to placebo and no measurable improvement in quality of life with IMT compared to placebo. However, there was a significant decrease in CRP (high sensitivity assay) in) in the IMT group compared to the placebo group. Conclusion: Immune modulation therapy did not improve walking distance in patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial disease but the decrease in CRP suggests a biologic effect of IMT and will warrant further study.
