Experimental Design: multicentre randomised, controlled, open-label, blinded endpoint assessed trial.
Hypothesis: Adding corticosteroid treatment to IVIG and aspirin will reduce CAA rates in unselected KD patients across Europe compared with IVIG and aspirin alone.
Objective: To determine the efficacy and safety of adjunctive corticosteroid therapy combined with IVIG/aspirin for prevention of CAA in unselected patients with KD across Europe. Planned enrollment is 262 children over 30 months from 30 centres across Europe. An overview of KD-CAAP is summarised in the Figure.
Primary endpoint: KD-CAAP will have two co-primary outcome measures:
- any CAA documented within 3 months;
- maximum coronary Z-score at weeks 1, 2, 6 adjusting for rescue treatment.
