Assess the effect on coronary atheroma of serial infusions of autologous selectively delipidated HDL/preβ enriched plasma following use of HDL Therapeutics PDS-2™ System
The PDS-2™ System is intended to reduce coronary atheroma in patients with Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (HoFH). Subjects will receive serial infusions of autologous selectively delipidated HDL/preβ enriched plasma following use of HDL Therapeutics' PDS-2 System.

This is an open-label, single-arm study to assess the reduction of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) by REGN1500 in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH).
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of ALN-PCSSC in participants with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia.
This is a single center, open-label study to evaluate the efficacy of AKCEA-ANGPTL3- LRX for reduction of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels in patients with Homozygous Fam...
Development of a new MS-based biomarker for the early and sensitive diagnosis of homozygous familial Hypercholesterolemia from plasma
The purpose of this study is to determine if implitapide, used in conjunction with other lipid-lowering therapies, is safe and effective when compared to placebo in lowering low-density li...
Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) causes premature cardiovascular disease (CVD). Lipoprotein apheresis (LA) is recommended as first-line lipid-lowering treatment (LLT) for homozygous (ho) FH.
There has recently been renewed interest in the study of the various facets of familial hypercholesterolemia, a severe monogenic disease associated with elevated LDL-cholesterol and premature cardiova...
Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) is a genetic dyslipidemia characterized by elevated levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and accelerated atherosclerosis. Frequently, t...
We provide an overview of molecular diagnosis for familial hypercholesterolemia in France including descriptions of the mutational spectrum, polygenic susceptibility and perspectives for improvement i...
Familial hypercholesterolemia is characterized by high LDL cholesterol and an elevated risk to develop coronary heart disease. Mutations in LDL receptor-mediated cholesterol uptake are the main cause ...
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.
Disorders of the peripheral nervous system associated with the deposition of AMYLOID in nerve tissue. Familial, primary (nonfamilial), and secondary forms have been described. Some familial subtypes demonstrate an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. Clinical manifestations include sensory loss, mild weakness, autonomic dysfunction, and CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1349)
A vascular anomaly composed of a collection of large, thin walled tortuous VEINS that can occur in any part of the central nervous system but lack intervening nervous tissue. Familial occurrence is common and has been associated with a number of genes mapped to 7q, 7p and 3q. Clinical features include SEIZURES; HEADACHE; STROKE; and progressive neurological deficit.
A system of therapeutics founded by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), based on the Law of Similars where "like cures like". Diseases are treated by highly diluted substances that cause, in healthy persons, symptoms like those of the disease to be treated. The dilutions are repeated so many times that there is less than one molecule per dose and it is suggested that benefit is from the energetic life force of the original substance.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
