Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Randomized Study to Evaluate the Effects of BMS-823778 on Atherosclerotic Plaque Inflammation as Measured by Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)- Positron Emission Tomography (PET) in Patients With Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease

Further study details as provided by Bristol-Myers Squibb:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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:
  • 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)

  • 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 ]
