  • How Common is FH ?

  • It is Common - Frequency FH ~1/500 120,000 in UK

  • It is underdiagnosed < 15,000 known, particularly in the < 35 years group (600/14,000 children)

Same as childhood diabetes

LDL- C Burden in FH patients

Starr et al 2008

FH patients have high LDL-C from Birth  high LDL-C BURDEN

LDL - Burden =

LDL-C level x

years exposure

Like smoking pack-years

By 45yrs FH patient has accumulated LDL-C exposure of non- FH 70yr old, explaining high CHD risk and need for aggressive lipid-lowering

Can LDL-C be lowered in FH patients?

Hadfield et al 2007

3.3 mmol/l

Overall

~ 50% reduction

6.7 mmol/l

But 34% > 4.0mmol/l

and 12% > 5.0mmol/l

n = 249

Low potency (cheap) Simvastatin 40 is inadequate for >95% FH patients

Combination therapy may be needed to achieve target

Pre Statin

Post Statin

1992–1999

Statins reduce CHD in FH

Simon Broome UK-FH Register papers, BMJ 1991, Athero 1999,

8.1 = >23 yrs reduction

in life expectancy

~ 9 years gained by statins

Tendon Xanthomas in HeFH


Simon broome criteria

Simon Broome criteria

Definite FH:

TC > 6.7 mmol/l or LDL-C >4.0 mmol/l (child <16y)

or TC > 7.5 mmol/l or LDL-C >4.9 mmol/l (adult)

(levels either pre-treatment or highest on treatment)

plus

tendon xanthomas in patient, or in 10 relative (parent, sibling, child), or in 20 relative (grandparent, uncle, aunt)

or

DNA-based evidence of an LDL receptor mutation, familial defective apo B-100, or a PCSK9 mutation.

Possible FH is defined as above lipids plus one of:

family history of myocardial infarction: below age of 50 years in 20 relative or below age 60 years in 10 relative

or

family history of raised TC >7.5 mmol/l in adult 10 or 20 relative or > 6.7 mmol/l in child or sibling <16y

The ldl receptor pathway

The LDL-receptor pathway

ApoB3500 defects (binding ligand). 3-10%. Less severe phenotype

LDL receptor defect.80-95% of cases

Autosomal recessive hypercholesterolaemia. Rare

PCSK9 defect. Gain and loss of function mutations. 2%

Nice fh guidelines

NICE FH Guidelines


Key elements of the nice fh guideline and the work of the heart uk fh git

  • Key priorities

Diagnosis

  • Use the Simon Broome criteria to diagnose FH

  • All individuals should be offered a DNA test to confirm the diagnosis and to assist in cascade testing of relatives

  • CHD risk estimation tools such as those based on the Framingham algorithm should not be used because people with FH are already at a high risk of CHD.

  • In children at risk of FH because of one affected parent the following diagnostic tests should be carried out by age of 10 years :

  • - a DNA test if the family mutation is known

    • - LDL-C measurement if mutation not known


Key elements of the nice fh guideline and the work of the heart uk fh git

  • Key priorities

Management

  • Adults - Prescribe a high-intensity statin to achieve a reduction in LDL-C of > 50% from baseline (ie, before treatment).

  • Children/young people – Should be seen by a specialist in an appropriate setting, and using clinical judgement, statin therapy considered by age 10

  • All people with FH should be offered an annual regular structured review

Ongoing assessment and monitoring

  • Cascade testing - combination of DNA testing and LDL-C levels is recommended to identify affected relatives of those with a clinical FH.

  • The use of a nationwide, family-based, follow-up system is recommended to enable comprehensive identification of people affected by FH.
