The objective of this study was to determine if pentoxifylline, 400 mg, taken orally 3 times a day as an adjunct therapy to ambulatory limb compression bandages to treat venous leg ulcer was more efficacious than ambulatory limb compression bandages with a matching placebo by 24 weeks of care. Previous clinical trials had produced conflicting results.
