  Purpose

Primary objective:

  • To evaluate whether 12 weeks of clopidogrel is superior to ticlopidine in terms of lower risk of the safety events of interests in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD)

Secondary objectives:

  • To compare the risk of bleeding adverse events, serious adverse events and overall safety of clopidogrel with ticlopidine
  • To compare the risk of vascular events of clopidogrel with ticlopidine
  • To document the long-term safety of clopidogrel for a total of 52 weeks
  • To document the vascular events of clopidogrel for a total of 52 weeks

Drug: clopidogrel (SR25990)
Drug: ticlopidine

Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Randomized, Double Blind, Parallel Group Study to Investigate the Safety of 12 Weeks of Clopidogrel 75 mg/Day Versus Ticlopidine 200 mg/Day in Patients With Peripheral Arterial Disease - With Extended Treatment of Clopidogrel 75 mg/Day for 40 Weeks
