Abstract Simvastatin significantly increased treadmill exercise time until onset of intermittent claudication from baseline by 54 seconds (a 24\% increase, p <0.0001) at 6 months after treatment and by 95 seconds (a 42\% increase, p <0.0001) at 1 year after treatment. At 6 months and 1 year after treatment with placebo, treadmill exercise time until onset of intermittent claudication was not significantly different from baseline exercise time.
