Brief description Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is the most common genetic condition known to cause premature coronary heart diseaseis (CHD). The increasd CHD risk in FH may be in part due to accumulation of fat in blood. Fish oil supplementation may be a new target, additional to standard best therapy, for reducing CHD risk in FH. Our results will add value to the science behind and clinical therapy for lipid disorders in FH, and will establish a key role for fish oils.
