Familial Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency Understanding
Familial Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency: Overview
Familial lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency is a rare genetic metabolic disorder characterized by a deficiency of the enzyme lipoprotein lipase. Deficiency of this enzyme prevents affected individuals from properly digesting certain fats and results in massive accumulation of fatty droplets called chylomicrons in the circulation (chylomicronemia) and consequently also an increase of the plasma concentration of fatty substances called triglycerides. Affected individuals often experience episodes of abdominal pain, acute recurrent inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), abnormal enlargement of the liver and/or spleen (hepatosplenomegaly), and the development of skin lesions known as eruptive xanthomas. Familial LPL deficiency is caused by changes (mutations) in the lipoprotein lipase (LPL) gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. Recently, mutations in other genes besides LPL were found to cause a clinical picture similar to LPL deficiency.
Signs & Symptoms
Most cases of familial LPL deficiency are identified during childhood, usually before the age of 10. In approximately 25 percent of patients, the disorder is identified during the first year of life. Some affected individuals may not be identified until adulthood. For example, some women may not be diagnosed until after becoming pregnant or when they begin taking contraceptive medication.
The severity of familial LPL deficiency varies depending upon the degree of chylomicronemia, which fluctuates depending upon the amount fat in an individual’s diet. The main symptoms are abdominal pain, pancreatitis, eruptive xanthomas and hepatosplenomegaly.
The most common symptom of familial LPL deficiency is episodic abdominal pain. The severity of abdominal pain can vary, ranging from mild to severe and, in some people, can be incapacitating. The pain may be located in the upper, central region (epigastric area) of the abdomen and can radiate to cause back pain. In some people, the pain may be widespread (diffuse) and can potentially resemble acute abdomen (peritonitis). In the past, this has led to unnecessary surgery.
The diagnosis of LPL deficiency is established in a proband by the identification of biallelic pathogenic variants in LPL on molecular genetic testing.
Treatment of manifestations: Treatment is based on medical nutrition therapy to maintain plasma triglyceride concentration below 1000 mg/dL. Maintenance of triglyceride levels below 2000 mg/dL prevents recurrent abdominal pain. Restriction of dietary fat to ≤20 g/day or 15% of a total energy intake is usually sufficient to reduce plasma triglyceride concentration and to keep the individual with familial LPL deficiency free of symptoms. An acute pancreatitis episode is treated with standard care.
Prevention of secondary complications: Prevention of recurrent acute pancreatitis decreases the risk of developing diabetes mellitus.
- Surveillance: Monitoring of plasma triglycerides.
- Agents/circumstances to avoid: Agents known to increase endogenous triglyceride concentration such as alcohol, oral estrogens, diuretics, isotretinoin, glucocorticoids, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, and beta-adrenergic blocking agents; fish oil supplements are contraindicated because they contribute to chylomicron levels.
- Pregnancy management: For pregnant women with LPL deficiency, extreme dietary fat restriction to <2 g/day during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy with close monitoring of plasma triglyceride concentration is recommended.
- Other: The lipid-lowering drugs that are used to treat other disorders of lipid metabolism are not effective in individuals with familial LPL deficiency.

Familial Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Familial Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Familial Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency Emerging Drugs
Olezarsen: Ionis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Olezarsen, formerly known as IONIS-APOCIII-LRx and AKCEA-APOCIII-LRx, is an investigational ligand-conjugated antisense (LICA) medicine designed to inhibit the production of apoC-III for patients who are at risk of disease due to elevated triglyceride levels. ApoC-III is a protein produced in the liver that regulates triglyceride metabolism in the blood. People with severely elevated triglycerides, such as people with FCS, are at high risk for acute pancreatitis and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, or CVD. The drug is in Phase III clinical evaluation for the treatment of familial lipoprotein lipase deficiency.
