 Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an inherited defect in the body where it cannot recycle LDL properly. FH is caused by mutations in the genes coding for the Low-Density Lipoprotein Receptor (LDLR), apolipoprotein B (ApoB) or Proprotein Convertase Subtilase/ Kexin type 9 (PCSK9). This defect leads to severe elevations in total cholesterol (CH) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLc) in the body. FH has a huge impact on molecular biology, clinical medicine and public health.
