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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Greek Registry - Familial Hypercholesterolaemia

In contrast, timely recognition and effective treatment of FH can result in a significant improvement in clinical outcomes. The problem is that that majority of individuals with FH are unaware of their disease, particularly that the disease remains silent for many years. In most countries around the world <5% of ...

Phase N/A

Aortic Stenosis in Subjects With Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia on Prolonged Treatment With Statins

The study includes a single clinical visit with collection of clinical data, blood extraction and the performance of a transthoracic echocardiogram. This visit may be made on different days, but always within 30 days of signing the informed consent.

Phase N/A

An Extension Trial of Inclisiran Compared to Evolocumab in Participants With Cardiovascular Disease and High Cholesterol

ORION-3, an extension of study MDCO-PCS-15-01 (ORION-1) [NCT02597127], is a Phase II, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized trial to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of inclisiran (ALN-PCSSC) injection(s). All participants who completed ORION-1 (at least up to and including Day 210) and meet the study criteria will be enrolled into this ...

Phase

Efficacy and Safety of Gemcabene in Patients With Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia on Stable Lipid-Lowering Therapy (COBALT-1)

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of multiple doses of Gemcabene in patients with HoFH on stable, lipid-lowering therapy.
