The secondary prevention of transient ischaemic attacks was assessed in 270 patients treated orally with 100 mg indobufen given twice daily for 12 months. After 1 month's treatment, the average number and average incidence of transient ischaemic attacks were reduced significantly (P less than 0.001) and remained suppressed throughout the treatment period. Treatment was interrupted in 17 patients: in two because of side-effects (gastric disturbances); in 10 because of fatal events (six completed strokes, two myocardial infarcts and two unrelated deaths); and in five due to poor protocol compliance. Progression to reversible ischaemic neurological deficit occurred in five patients. Most side-effects were mild and transient, mainly occurring in the first month of treatment. Overall, indobufen was judged to have good efficacy and safety by both patients and physicians.
