A31: Vitamin D Status is a Determinant of the Effect of Atorvastatin on Carotid Intima Medial Thickening Progression Rate in Children with Lupus: An Atherosclerosis Prevention in Pediatric Lupus Erythematosus Substudy.
Epidemiologic associations suggest that vitamin D status may play a role in inflammation and progression of atherosclerosis. Using frozen serum, carotid intima medial thickness (CIMT) measurements, and other existing data from the Atherosclerosis Prevention in Pediatric Lupus Erythematosus (APPLE) trial, we assessed interactions between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D], atorvastatin randomization, and CIMT progression rate.
