Aiding in the diagnosis of familial defective apolipoprotein B-100 in individuals with elevated untreated LDL cholesterol concentrations
Distinguishing the diagnosis of familial defective apolipoprotein B-100 from other causes of hyperlipidemia, such as familial hypercholesterolemia and familial combined hyperlipidemia
Comprehensive genetic analysis for hypercholesterolemic individuals who test negative for a mutation in the LDLR gene by sequencing (LDLRS / Familial Hypercholesterolemia, LDLR Full Gene Sequencing) and/or gene dosage (LDLM / Familial Hypercholesterolemia, LDLR Large Deletion/Duplication, Molecular Analysis)
This assay is a genetic test for the APOB gene and will not provide an apolipoprotein B measurement. If apolipoprotein B analysis is desired, see APLB / Apolipoprotein B, Plasma.
