RESULTS

Found (23) clinical trials

The purpose of this registry is to collect and maintain clinical information about patients that have been diagnosed with Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH). The information will be used to look at current treatment, events, and outcomes of these patients. This will help further the understanding of the disease and improve care, ...

Phase N/A

The Rogosin Institute Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia Repository

Detailed information of "standard of care" procedures will be compiled in a database. These include medical history and physical exam, lipid profiles and other standard blood tests, dietary evaluation and counseling, cardiology evaluation including EKG and echocardiogram,ultrasound of carotids and femoral arteries, CT angiogram and, if indicated, intracoronary angiography (ICA) ...

Phase N/A

IN-TANDEM Familial Hypercholesterolemia Pilot Study

The purpose of this study is to validate the use of the FH Foundation FIND FH Algorithm as a clinical decision support tool. FIND FH (Flag/Identify/Network/Engage) is a national initiative that utilizes machine learning and data mining techniques to identify individuals whose profiles are consistent with FH patients. The algorithm ...

Phase N/A

a Prospective Pilot Study of Screening Out Rate and Clinical Management of Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Objective 1.1.Primary Objective To estimate the prevalence of clinical diagnosed familial hypercholesterolemia, as well as the clinical characteristics and current treatment, with applying China recent issued FH screening protocol in pilot outpatient department of China. 1.2.Secondary Objective To describe parameters related to clinical management of diagnosed FH, including patient demographics ...

Phase N/A

Screening Protocol for a Gene Therapy Trial in Subjects With Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) is a rare genetic metabolic disorder characterized by markedly elevated LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) levels, resulting in severe atherosclerosis often leading to early onset of cardiovascular disease. The most frequent cause is mutation in the LDL receptor gene (LDLR). LDL-C levels remain frequently above acceptable levels despite treatment ...

Phase N/A

Long Term Post Marketing Specified Drug Use Result Survey for Evolocumab in Japan

The objectives of study are to 1) determine the incidence of adverse events and adverse drug reactions among patients receiving evolocumab for up to 2 years, and 2) identify and describe patient characteristics (e.g. demographics, medical history) associated with the safety and effectiveness of evolocumab therapy for the patients with ...

Phase N/A

Developing and Implementing Familial Hypercholesterolemia Registry

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a genetic disorder define as high cholesterol levels, particularly very high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), in the blood and early cardiovascular disease and premature death. FH is an autosomal dominant disease with a prevalence 1:500 (new study in Netherlands demonstrated 1:244) in population more frequent ...

Phase N/A

Familial Hypercholesterolemia Canada / Hypercholesterolemie Familiale Canada

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a genetic lipoprotein disorder characterized by elevations in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) >95th percentile for age and gender. Affected individuals may show clinical manifestations (xanthomas, xanthelasmas and premature arcus corneus) although these manifestations are seen less frequently with early diagnosis and treatment. Untreated, FH will lead ...

Phase N/A

A Registration Study for Familial Hypercholesterolemia in Taiwan

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an inherited disorder of lipoprotein metabolism, transmitted in an autosomal dominant manner and clinically characterized by elevated levels of total cholesterol (TC) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the presence of tendon xanthomas, and premature atherosclerosis.The genetic basis of FH is a large array of point mutations ...

Phase N/A

Lp(a) and Aortic Valve Calcification

Aortic valve stenosis (AVS), the most common form of valve disease in the western world, afflicts more than 1 million individuals in North America [1] and the burden of AVS is high and is expected to double within the next 50 years [2]. Medical therapy to prevent development or reduce ...
