Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The effect of BMS-823778 versus placebo on carotids and/or ascending aortic will be measured by fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake in the index vessel as by positron emission tomography (PET) imaging [ Time Frame: Day 168 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Structural changes in the arterial wall (absolute, percent change, and both, from baseline in four indices) [ Time Frame: Day 364 ]
    Structural changes in the arterial wall (absolute, percent change, and both, from baseline in four indices): total vessel area, wall area, wall thickness, and wall area/total vessel area ratio (normalized wall index), based on the average of the right and left carotids, measured by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

  2. Safety will be measured by adverse event, vital signs, electrocardiogram, physical examinations, clinical laboratory tests and Ferriman- Gallwey scores [ Time Frame: Approximately up to 60 weeks ]
