Lomitapide in homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia: cardiology perspective from a single-center experience.

Summary of "Lomitapide in homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia: cardiology perspective from a single-center experience."

Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) is a genetic dyslipidemia characterized by elevated levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and accelerated atherosclerosis. Frequently, traditional lipid-lowering therapy is ineffective in these patients, and lipoprotein apheresis is required. Lomitapide has been recently approved for HoFH. We reported our experience in HoFH patients treated with lomitapide, evaluating its efficacy and safety profile.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal recessive disorder affecting DIHYDROPYRIMIDINE DEHYDROGENASE and causing familial pyrimidinemia. It is characterized by thymine-uraciluria in homozygous deficient patients. Even a partial deficiency in the enzyme leaves individuals at risk for developing severe 5-FLUOROURACIL-associated toxicity.

A group of HEREDITARY AUTOINFLAMMATION DISEASES, characterized by recurrent fever, abdominal pain, headache, rash, PLEURISY; and ARTHRITIS. ORCHITIS; benign MENINGITIS; and AMYLOIDOSIS may also occur. Homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in marenostrin gene result in autosomal recessive transmission; simple heterozygous, autosomal dominant form of the disease.

The study of the heart, its physiology, and its functions.

The hospital department responsible for the administration and provision of diagnostic and therapeutic services for the cardiac patient.

Written or other literary works whose subject matter is related to mental disorders or psychiatry from the lay or practitioner perspective. .
