The researchers found that the primary outcome (composite of perinatal death, preterm delivery, or neonatal unit admission for at least four hours) occurred in 23 and 27 percent of infants in the ursodeoxycholic acid and placebo groups, respectively (adjusted risk ratio, 0.85; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.62 to 1.15).
