absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. 111–113 Recurrent UTIs have been associated with PBC in several epide- miological studies. 62 114 It is unclear whether the association is a cause or a consequence of PBC, and thus whether aggressively treating UTIs may have any impact on the natural history of PBC. Recurrent UTIs are, however, a potential cause of impaired QoL in PBC and should be effectively managed for this reason. Despite elevation of cholesterol being a frequent feature in PBC, there is no robust (...) evidence to suggest that ischaemic heart disease or other forms of atherosclerotic disease are seen at increased frequency in the condition. 115–118 This is likely to reflect the fact that cholesterol elevation is typically high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and lipoprotein X. There is no evidence that statin therapy is associated with increased risk of liver injury and these drugs can be used as would be indicated in patients without PBC. 119–121 Of relevance to cardiac risk is the observation from case

These findings suggest that iPSC-endothelial cells can model not only familial pulmonary arterial hypertension caused by BMPR2 mutations but also the effects of genetic modifiers of BMPR2 mutations resulting in an absence of disease. Metabolic Risk Factors for Ischemic Heart Disease Blood concentrations of lipids, namely, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, are well-established risk factors for ischemic heart disease. A number (...) impaired LDL particle uptake, whereas the familial hypobetalipoproteinemia iPSC-hepatocytes displayed increased LDL particle uptake. Tangier disease, also known as hypoalphalipoproteinemia, is marked by abnormally low blood levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol caused by recessive mutations in ABCA1 (ATP-binding cassette subfamily A member 1). ABCA1 is the molecule that effluxes cholesterol from cells such as macrophages onto high-density lipoprotein particles and thus is a key mediator
