- •A retrospective cohort study among 640 women evaluated for ICP.
- •In all women serum bile acids levels were tested along with routine liver tests.
- •A combined laboratory score incorporating AST, GGT, ALK and TB was shown to reliably exclude the diagnosis of ICP.
- •The current study findings may be particularly important as serum bile acids levels testing is not readily available.
Abbreviations:ALK (alkaline phosphatase), ALT (alanine transaminase), AST (aspartate aminotransferase), GGT (gamma glutamyl transferase), ICP (intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy), TB (total bilirubin)
