High prevalence of fulminant hepatic failure among patients with mutant alleles for truncation of ATP7B in Wilson's disease.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Although many mutations of the Wilson's disease (WD) gene (ATP7B) have been reported, few data exist regarding the occurrence of fulminant hepatic failure (FHF). We sought to determine if genotypic assignment according to type of protein-product could be related to the prevalence of FHF among patients with WD. MATERIAL AND METHODS We performed… (More)
