Why participate in FH clinical research?

By participating in clinical research, you will play an active role in your own healthcare and contribute to the greater good. Because FH is a family disorder, clinical research offers hope and the opportunity to have a powerful impact on the lives of your family members and your future generations.

The FH Foundation seeks to (1) encourage the patient community to step forward and participate in FH research and (2) add to the current body of knowledge about FH.

Observational Studies

Observational studies are one type of clinical trial. There are no treatments or actions in an observational study. This type of study can help inform how to best diagnose, treat, and manage a disease or a condition.

The FH Foundation’s CASCADE FHTM Registry is an observational study aimed at helping FH individuals and researchers better understand the condition. For this study, patients provide data directly to the FH Foundation about the burden of disease, knowledge of FH, barriers to care, and experiences with current and new therapies.
