  CIGNA - OSMED, Heterozygous
Heterozygous OSMED (oto-spondyl-megaepiphyseal dysplasia) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by skeletal malformations resulting in shortening of the upper limbs and thighs and short stature (rhizomelic dwarfism).
Heterozygous OSMED is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.

 eMedicine - Hypercholesterolemia, Familial : Article by Elena Citkowitz
In patients with heterozygous FH, half the LDL receptors are normal and half are rendered ineffective by the mutation.
The diagnosis of both homozygous and heterozygous FH is based primarily on the finding of severe LDLc elevations in the absence of secondary causes of hypercholesterolemia with triglyceride levels that are within the reference range or mildly elevated and HDL cholesterol (HDLc) levels that are within the reference range or slightly low.
Treatment for heterozygous FH In patients with heterozygous FH, lifestyle modification should always be instituted but is unlikely to result in acceptable LDLc levels; therefore, cholesterol-lowering medication (usually more than one) is necessary.

The clinical phenotype of heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is characterized by increased plasma levels of total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol, tendinous xanthomata, and premature symptoms of coronary heart disease.
As shown in Table 4, the frequency of heterozygous FH is considerably higher than 1/500 in some populations, and the elevated frequency is generally attributed to a founder effect.
Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia is associated with increased coronary heart disease and premature death.

 Heterozygote Summary
The term heterozygous refers to the situation where a specific gene is represented by two differing forms or alelles within the diploid nucleus.
An organism is a heterozygote or heterozygous for a gene or trait if it has different alleles at the gene's locus for each homologous chromosome.
Heterozygosity refers to the state of being a heterozygote, but in population genetics, it commonly refers to the fraction of individuals in a population that are heterozygous for that locus.

 Odds
When breeding heterozygous to heterozygous animals or even heterozygous to homozygous it's important to remember that the percentages shown in the Punnet's square diagrams are the odds for each egg, not a guarantee of what you will get in any particular 4 or 16 egg clutch.
Each egg from a heterozygous X heterozygous breeding has a 25% chance of being homozygous and is independent from the 25% chance of the other eggs in the clutch.
The above chart is for heterozygous X heterozygous as in your chance of producing a recessive albino from crossing two heterozygous albinos.

 NEJM -- Absence of thrombosis in subjects with heterozygous protein C deficiency
Autosomal inheritance of heterozygous protein C deficiency was confirmed in them by a detailed study of four families.
Levels from 55 to 65 percent of normal are consistent with either heterozygous deficiency or the lower end of the distribution of normal values, and were found in 79 of 5422 subjects when the two groups were combined.
We conclude that heterozygous deficiency of protein C has a prevalence of 1 in 200 to 300, a figure consistent with the known number of homozygous infants recently identified, and that levels consistent with heterozygous deficiency are found in 1 in 60 healthy adults but are not detectably associated with a risk of thrombosis.

Gingival epithelial cells heterozygous for Toll-like receptor 4 polymorphisms Asp299Gly and Thr399Ile are hypo-responsive to Porphyromonas gingivalis
We obtained two gingival epithelial cell primary cultures from subjects heterozygous for the TLR4 polymorphism Asp299Gly and compared response characteristics with similar cells from patients (four) with the wild-type TLR4 genes.
The epithelial cells heterozygous for the TLR4 polymorphism Asp299Gly were functionally hypo-responsive, evidenced by differences in BD-2 mRNA expression, mRNA response profile by microarray analysis and by pro-inflammatory and chemokine cytokines at the protein and mRNA level.
