The Institue of Human Gene Therapy at the University of Pennsylvania, under the direction of Dr. James Wilson, is recruiting additional patients for evaluation for gene therapy trials for homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Transportation is available to Philadephia (USA), and patients will be admitted to the General Clinical Research Center unit at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania or the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. This protocol has been approved by our IRB, and patients are assured of anonymity in any publication or presentation which may result from this work.
