The hereditary types of hyperlipoproteinemia are familial lipoprotein lipase deficiency and/or apoprotein C-II deficiency (type I or V), familial hypercholesterolemia (type IIa or IIb), familial dysbetalipoproteinemia type III), familial hypertriglyceridemia (type IV), and combined hypercholesterolemia (type IIa, IIb, and/or IV) (table).

What is somewhat unexpected from colesevelam treatment is the finding that a number of genes involved in RCT, including apoprotein AI (apoAI), lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT), cholesterol ester transfer protein (CETP), and scavenger receptor BI (SRBI) are upregulated in coordinated fashion secondary to the activation of the liver X receptor, a ligand activated nuclear transcription factor.
