Genetics of PFIC by Subtype

2021 Family Conference

This presentation, the second of two keynote speeches from the 2021 PFIC Network Virtual Family Conference, aims to demystify the general term of “PFIC.” It will take a deep dive into each of the genes involved with PFIC that have been identified to date, what is understood about the spectrum of each subtype of PFIC, and what still is yet to come. It is presented by Dr. Richard Thompson, a member of the PFIC Network Medical Advisory Board. Dr. Thompson is a Professor of Molecular Hepatology at the Institute for Liver Studies, Kings College London and Consultant Pediatric Hepatologist, at Kings College Hospital.
