The Spanish Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Cohort Study

Familiar hypercholesterolemia (FH) is the most common genetic disorder associated with the development of severe and premature coronary artery disease (CAD). The disorder is caused by mutations in the gene that encodes the low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDL-r), resulting in a lower expression of functional LDL-r in the liver. FH has ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Russian Familial Hypercholesterolemia Registry

*Design. We have chosen a randomly selected cohort of individuals who have been tested in the Moscow office of the "INVITRO" Laboratory on the basis of advertising campaign held in September, 2013, for the purpose of TC level measurement and determination of cardiovascular risk with the use of SCORE chart. ...

Phase N/A

Biomarker for Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) is a rare hereditary disorder of lipoprotein metabolism characterized by exceptionally high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). Clinical manifestations may vary but often include markedly premature coronary artery disease, supravalvular aortic stenosis due to aortic root atheroma, and cutaneous manifestations such as tendon xanthomata. Although ...

Phase N/A

Familial Hypercholesterolemia Amongst Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome

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

Phase N/A

Study of Awareness and Detection of Familial Hypercholesterolemia

The FH Foundation CASCADE-FH Registry will implement an enrollment framework which is characterized by three possible points of contact: 1) Clinic enrollment 2) Self-enrollment through an online patient portal, and 3) Electronic Health Record (EHR) identification. Pathway 1: Clinic-Based Screening and Enrollment During the initial study phase, a number of ...
