Gross et al. present results of the EARLY PRO-TECT trial, a randomized controlled trial of ramipril versus placebo in children with early-stage Alport syndrome. Although under-enrolled and not a positive trial in the traditional sense, EARLY PRO-TECT does provide strong supportive evidence for both long-term safety and a clinical benefit of early treatment with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors in slowing the progression of both albuminuria and estimated glomerular filtration rate decline in children with Alport syndrome.
