Atherosclerosis Prevention in Pediatric Lupus Erythematosus (APPLE)
The purpose of this study is:
1. To assess the efficacy of a lipid-lowering agent (atorvastatin) on the development of
atherosclerosis that predisposes children with SLE to cardiovascular events in
2. To assess the safety of intermediate-term (36 months) treatment of children and young
adults with atorvastatin.
3. To further characterize the course of SLE in children and young adults, by establishing
a cohort of pediatric SLE patients to be followed prospectively.
4. To establish a mechanism for conducting clinical trials in rare pediatric rheumatic
diseases using the Children's Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA).
CARE-2 (Calcium Acetate [PhosLo®]/Sevelamer[Renagel®] Evaluation Study 2) for Heart Calcification in Dialysis Patients
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effects of two phosphate binders, PhosLo and
sevelamer, on heart calcification in dialysis patients. The study will use a non-invasive
technique, electron beam computed tomography (CT) scanning, to measure calcium in the
