Atherosclerosis of the neck or hardening of the carotid artery in the neck (carotid stenosis) can be caused by too much LDL or bad cholesterol, smoking, high blood pressure or diabetes. The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication to reduce arterial plaque in subjects with carotid atherosclerosis. A state-of-the-art 3T MRI scan will be provided to participants that qualify. This study is approximately 6 months long with 11 visits. All qualifying participants receive study visits, 3T MRI, ultrasound (if needed), study medication, at no charge. There will also be a nominal reimbursement for a patients time and travel costs.
