Coronary heart disease and stroke are major causes of death in the Western world. Elevated blood cholesterol levels are a serious risk factor for both conditions. The genetic disease familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) causes an increase in blood levels of the "bad" form of cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL). In untreated patients with the mutant FH gene, the condition can cause premature death.
