This study will be conducted in accordance with the local regulation of New Drug Application. Overall duration of this trial will be 3 years after approval of KFDA. Each subject will participate around 7 weeks, which include the 2 weeks Amlodipine run-in period, 4 weeks double blind period and 1 week safety follow up period

Clinical Details

Official title: A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Group, Therapeutic Confirmatory Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Pletaal(Cilostazol) in Subjects With Vasospastic Angina

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Chest Pain Frequency

Secondary outcome:

Percent change of the chest pain frequency

Proportion of subjects without chest pain

total chest pain intensity

average pain intensity(the total pain intensity/the number of pain)

total nitroglycerin sublingual consumption

Detailed description: A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel group, Therapeutic confirmatory Study. The subject who has at least one episode of chest pain weekly and at least two episodes of chest pain during last week despite Amlodipine 5mg qd taking during 2 weeks will have treatment of Pletaal(Cilostazol) or Placebo for 4 weeks. Pletaal(Cilostazol) is taken 100mg oral tablets bid during 2 weeks after dosing of Pletaal(Cilostazol) 50mg oral tablets bid during 2 weeks. Placebo of Pletaal(Cilostazol) is used as the control medication.


Minimum age: 20 Years. Maximum age: 79 Years. Gender(s): Both.


Subjects must meet all of the following inclusion criteria to be eligible for enrollment into the study : 1. Male or female 20 or over the age of 20 and under the age of 80. 2. Patients showing angina attack even while resting during the screening, diagnosed with vasospastic angina within the previous 3 months by meeting at least one of the 3 definitions, and accompanying insignificant (stenosis rate <50%) coronary artery disease documented by coronary angiography within the last 3 months [temporary antispastic agents (monotherapies or a combination of Verapamil and Nitroglycerin, anticoagulants) for coronary angiography are allowed]

- Chest pain accompanied by at least 2 temporary, closely located ST elevations or

depressions of 0. 1mV or greater in the absence of ergonovine provoked coronary angiography.

- Positive Intracoronary (IC) or Intravenous (IV) Ergonovine provocation test;

ischemic ECG change accompanied by chest pain and spasm reducing the coronary diameter by 90% or more (at least 2 temporary, closely located ST elevations or depressions of 0. 1mV or greater on 12-lead ECG) 3. Patients who reported at least 1 episode of chest pain in a week during amlodipine run-in period and at least 2 episodes in the final week. 4. Women who had been menopausal or sterile for at least 1 year, or women of childbearing potential who agree to practice a contraceptive measure throughout the clinical trial (e. g., hormonal contraceptives, intrauterine devices, condom + spermicidal agents, diaphragm + spermicidal agents, and partner's infertility) 5. Subjects who signed a written agreement indicating that they were given full explanations of the clinical trial and are willing to participate in the clinical trial. Subjects presenting with any of the following will not be included in the study: 1. Subjects who used Cilostazol within 3 months before the screening visit 2. Subjects who used antiplatelet drugs, including Aspirin, Clopidogrel, Ticlopidine and Sarpogrelate, or PDE3 inhibitors of the same class as Cilostazol, such as Amrinone, Milrinone and Enoximone, after the initiation of the amlodipine run-in period 3. Subjects who used oral anticoagulants, such as warfarin, within 1 months prior to the screening visit 4. Subjects who used any of the following drugs within 1 week prior to the screening visit

- CCBs apart from amlodipine

- Beta-blockers or alpha-blockers

- Oral nitrate, excluding nitroglycerin sublingual tablet, Nicorandil

- Vitamin E preparations

- Estrogens

5. History of myocardial infarction or with myocardial infarction mediated by vasospastic angina at the time of screening 6. History of a life-threatening vasospastic event (e. g., ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation or syncope) 7. History of stroke, intracranial hemorrhage or transient ischemic attack (TIA) 8. Hemorrhage (hemophilia, capillary fragility, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, urinary tract bleeding, hemoptysis, vitreous hemorrhage, etc.) or such predisposition (active peptic ulcer, hemorrhage suspected at Cilostazol administration for surgical wound within the last 3 months, proliferative diabetic retinopathy) 9. History of hypersensitivity to the ingredients of Cilostazol, amlodipine, dihydropyridines such as nitroglycerine, and nitrates 10. Severe aortic stenosis 11. History of shock 12. Hypotension with systolic pressure of below 90mmHg at screening 13. Severe anemia with hemoglobin 6. 5g/dl or below at screening 14. History of glaucoma 15.
