Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  • Age>40 years
  • History of typical intermittent claudication lasting for at least 3 months, showing no improvement and consistent with treadmill test findings
  • Objective evidence of Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease. After 10 minutes of rest, either by Ankle brachial index measure (ABI) <0.8 or Systolic ankle pressure (AP) < 50 mmHg or Systolic toe pressure <50 mmHg
  • Patent femoral inflow above the level of injections recently (<2 weeks) documented either with Doppler ultrasonography or Magnetic Resonance Angiography or Angiography

Exclusion criteria:

  • Evidence of other causes for leg pain other than intermittent claudication.
  • Illnesses limiting subject exercise capacity (angina pectoris, heart failure, respiratory disease, orthopaedic disease, neurological disorders…)
  • Pain at rest
  • Buerger's disease
  • Positive serology for HIV 1 or 2, positive serology hepatitis B or C.
  • Subjects with serum creatinine > 2 mg/dl (176 µmol/l) and subjects on dialysis.
  • Active proliferative retinopathy defined by the presence of new vessel formation and scarring.
  • Subjects who had a stroke or neurologic deficit presumed to be due to stroke within 3 months prior to the first administration of study treatment
  • Previous treatment with any angiogenic growth factor
  • Pregnant or breast feeding women or who disagree to practice a medically accepted method of birth control. Men and women who do not agree to use condoms as the only accepted protection barrier, for the entire study period
  • Serious concomitant medical conditions not adequately controlled.
  • Current alcohol or drug abuse
