To the Editor: In the PREVENT IV study,1 edifoligide did not affect the rate of VGF, and on the basis of angiographic data the PREVENT IV investigators concluded that edifoligide did not have an appreciable effect on neointimal hyperplasia. We believe it may be premature to conclude that the lack of clinical benefit is due to a failure to inhibit neointimal proliferation and suggest 3 alternative explanations.
