FH WEEK - Why is action needed? Experts on FH discuss challenges, goals and the impact of FHSC

In our series "Experts in FH", some of the FHSC's contributors from around the world discuss the challenges they face at a national level in the awareness and management of Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH), their goals in participating in this global collaboration, and the impact it has already made.

FH Studies Collaboration (FHSC) was inititatied by EAS in 2015, and is already making a positive impact in the FH community with 84 contributing clinics, from 68 countries. The registry continues to grow through the combined efforts of the Coordinating Centre and all the participating investigators. As per Sept 2018, the FH Registry includes more than 11,000 cases from 25 countries in the world.

Introduction to EAS FH Studies Collaboration by Scientific Leader, Professor Kausik Ray: What is the Registry all about and what are the latest results of the network?

As more data is collected, harmonized and analysed, the results will highlight where action can be taken - supporting clinicians to make early diagnoses and provide effective treatment of FH.

The mission of the FH Studies Collaboration is to empower the medical and global community to seek change in their respective countries or organisations regarding how FH is detected and managed with a view to promoting early diagnosis and more effective treatment of FH. Improvement of the management of this condition will improve the lives of patients and empower the medical community to achieve a global policy change.
