PGS Performance Metrics

Disclaimer: The performance metrics are displayed as reported by the source studies. It is important to note that metrics are not necessarily comparable with each other. For example, metrics depend on the sample characteristics (described by the PGS Catalog Sample Set [PSS] ID), phenotyping, and statistical modelling. Please refer to the source publication for additional guidance on performance.

PSS000465 Individuals ≥18 years with clinically diagnosed heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) from the BCFH cohort. Individuals who were positive for the common French Canadian variant in the LDLR gene including del.15 kb of the promoter and exon 1, del.5 kb of exons 2 and 3, p.W66G (exon 3), p.E207K (exon 4), p.Y468X (exon 10), or p.C646Y (exon 14) in this study. Fasting clinical lipid profiles were obtained following a 4-week washout of any cholesterol-lowering medications from the CNMA cohort. Individuals who were positive for a LDLR, APOB, or PCSK9 variant that was deemed to cause FH in the UKB cohort.Any atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) event, which was defined as myocardial infarction, coronary artery disease or carotid revascularization, transient ischemic attack or stroke. For the UK Biobank, retrospecitvie ASCVD was self reported and prospective ASCVD were defined using hospital episode statistics and 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems diagnosis codes and OPCS Classification of Interventions and Procedures version 4 procedure codes 1,120 individuals,
