Determinants of lipid level variability in French-Canadian children with familial hypercholesterolemia.

The wide variability in the biochemical expression of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is only partly explained by mutational heterogeneity in the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) gene. In the current study, we measured this biochemical variability in a group of children heterozygous for the >15-kb LDLR gene deletion (n=67) and examined the… CONTINUE READING
