Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Diagnostic test accuracy). The objectives are as follows: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of total serum bile acids or total serum bile acids profile, or both for the diagnosis of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy in pregnant women presenting with pruritus. To compare the diagnostic accuracy of total serum bile acids and each component of serum bile acid profile, considered independently or in combination, in diagnosing intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy; to define the optimal cut-off values for these; and to investigate possible sources of heterogeneity.
