ConclusionsWe speculate that this mutation [Arg196Trp] in theUSF1 gene might be associated with FCHL and early ‐onset coronary heart disease in this family. However, the substantial mechanism requires further investigation. These findings indicate thatUSF1 plays an important role in the biological pathways associated with lipid metabolism.
To identify parents' preferences for goals and structure of intervention programs to support the psychosocial needs of families impacted by congenital heart disease (CHD).
CONCLUSIONS: The present findings suggest that the serum sdLDL cholesterol level is a relevant biomarker for the future development of CHD that offers benefit beyond the serum LDL cholesterol level and a possible therapeutic target to reduce the burden of CHD in a Japanese community.
