Child-Parent Familial Hypercholesterolemia Screening in Primary Care study

The study results have shown that screening was feasible at routine child immunization visits. For every 1000 children screened, 8 persons (4 children and 4 parents) were identified as having positive screening results for familial hypercholesterolemia and were consequently at high risk for cardiovascular disease.
