Elucigene FH20 and LIPOchip for the Diagnosis of Familial Hypercholesterolaemia: A Systematic Review and Economic Evaluation

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal dominant genetic condition causing a high risk of coronary heart disease. The prevalence of this disease is about 1 in 500 in the UK, affecting about 120,000 people across the whole of the UK. Current guidelines recommend DNA testing, however, these guidelines are poorly implemented, therefore 102,000 or 85% of this group remain undiagnosed.

Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2) in Children and Young People: Diagnosis and Management

Diabetes is a long-term condition that can have a major impact on the life of a child or young person, as well as their family or carers. In addition to insulin therapy, diabetes management should include education, support and access to psychological services, as detailed here and in this guideline. Preparations should also be made for the transition from paediatric to adult services, which have a somewhat different model of care and evidence base.

Drug Class Review: Thiazolidinediones: Final Report Update 1 [Internet]

There are 2 thiazolidinediones approved for prescription use in the United States, rosiglitazone maleate (Avandia™) and pioglitazone hydrochloride (Actos®). Both drugs are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for use in adults for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, either as monotherapy or in combination with insulin, metformin, or sulfonylurea when diet, exercise, and a single agent does not result in adequate glycemic control. Neither drug is currently approved for use in prediabetes or the metabolic syndrome. The objective of this review was to compare thiazolidinediones in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and the metabolic syndrome.
