The purpose of this study is to develop a registry of molecularly confirmed Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) cases in conjunction with the retrospective FHIRE study (IRB# 18-009654) in order to identify and offer genetic testing to Mayo Clinic patients with suspected FH.
Develop a biobank of samples from patients undergoing therapy with PCSK9 inhibitors (FDA- approved in 2015, therapeutics for hypercholesterolemia) with the goal of developing laboratory tests which may help identify best candidates for these therapies and aid in monitoring therapy efficacy.
