Heterogeneity of Genetic Transmission of Familial Hypercholesterolemia (F. H.) from Direct Parents in 20 Families of Homozygotes Type IIa
On the basis of classical criteria of homozygotism of familial hypercholesterolemia (F.H.) type IIa, we have revised, among 20 distinct families, genetic transmission from direct parents, father and mother, by using the generally accepted index of clearcut elevation of level of Serum Total Cholesterol (TC) and/or LDL cholesterol.
