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

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 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

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

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

A Gene Therapy Study for Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (HoFH)

Subjects will be asked to participate in an optional kinetics study. Subjects who agree will be admitted to the research inpatient unit at University of Pennsylvania or selected sites for the LDL kinetics study prior to vector administration. The LDL kinetic assessment will be performed using a primed constant infusion ...

Phase

An 8-Week Dose-Finding Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Alirocumab in Children and Adolescents With Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

For Cohorts 1 to 3, a study duration of approximately 16-23 weeks (screening period: up to 6 (+1) weeks, open-label dose finding treatment period: 8 weeks, follow up period: 6-8 weeks). For Cohort 4, a study duration of approximately 14-19 weeks (screening period up to 6 [+1] weeks, open-label dose ...

Phase

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

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 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 ...
