- Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy (ICP) in U.S. Latinas and Chileans: Clinical features, Ancestry Analysis, and Admixture Mapping. Bull, Laura N.; Hu, Donglei; Shah, Sohela; Temple, Luisa; Silva, Karla; Huntsman, Scott; Melgar, Jennifer; Geiser, Mary T.; Sanford, Ukina; Ortiz, Juan A.; Lee, Richard H.; Kusanovic, Juan P.; Ziv, Elad; Vargas, Juan E. // PLoS ONE;Jun2015, Vol. 10 Issue 6, p1
In the Americas, women with Indigenous American ancestry are at increased risk of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), relative to women of other ethnicities. We hypothesized that ancestry-related genetic factors contribute to this increased risk. We collected clinical and laboratory...
