Determine the predictive value of CARDIOLITE® rest and stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) to define a pediatric population with Kawasaki Disease (KD) at high and low risk of developing cardiac events.

Condition Intervention Phase
Kawasaki Disease
Drug: Sestamibi
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: A Phase III, Open-Label, Non-Randomized, International, Multicenter Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of CARDIOLITE® Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in Pediatric Subjects With Kawasaki Disease

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Kawasaki Disease Population at High and Low Risk of Developing Cardiac Events Though Three Years Follow-up. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    The proportion of all patients who experienced cardiac events among patients with abnormal (SSS >=4, high risk) and normal (SSS <4, low risk) Cardiolite MPI scans during the follow-up period. A log-rank statistic (2-sided, alpha = 0.05) was computed to compare cardiac event-free survival in the high risk and low risk groups. The cardiac event rate is the cumulative event rate based on a Kaplan-Meier estimate conditional on the SPECT MPI score result.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Concordance Will be Determined Between the Presence of Perfusion Abnormalities Detected on Sestamibi Images and the Classification of Ischemic Heart Disease. [ Time Frame: 3 year follow up ]
  • In Addition, a Determination of the Safety of Sestamibi Will be Evaluated at the End of the Study Through Adverse and Serious Adverse Events Reported and Evaluating Vital Signs, ECGs, Physical Exams and Laboratory Tests for Each Subject. [ Time Frame: 3 year follow up ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Children (Ages 4-11)
Children 4-11 years of age, intervention Sestamibi
Drug: Sestamibi
Other Name: Cardiolite
Adolescents (Ages 12-16)
Adolescents 12-16 years of age, intervention Sestamibi

Other Name: Cardiolite

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this clinical research study is to determine how well CARDIOLITE® rest and stress myocardial (heart) imaging can define the pediatric Kawasaki disease (KD) population into high and low risk categories of developing cardiac (heart) events (complications) from 1 year through 3 years after image completion. The safety of CARDIOLITE® rest and stress heart imaging will also be studied.

Ages Eligible for Study:   4 Years to 16 Years   (Child)

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Males or females between 4 and 16
  • Meet the epidemiological definition of Kawasaki Disease or have a diagnosis of incomplete KD, including evidence of coronary artery disease as determined by their physician.
  • Be able to exercise adequately to achieve 85% age predicted maximum heart rate

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Terminal illness where expected survival is < 6 months
