About primary biliary cholangitis

Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) is a chronic, or long-lasting, disease that causes the small bile ducts in the liver to become inflamed, damaged and ultimately destroyed. This causes bile to remain in the liver, which damages the liver cells over time, and results in cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver. As cirrhosis progresses, and the amount of scar tissue in the liver increases, the liver loses its ability to function [1].

PBC is a disease that disproportionately affects women, with 10 women for every man having the disease. The diagnosis is made most frequently in middle-aged women between the ages of about 30 and 60 years. PBC is considered to be an uncommon disease, but not rare [2].

The above products may be suitable for treating patients with PBS. We recommend that you discuss the suitability of possible treatment options with your doctor. For further information please contact our support team at support@thesocialmedwork.com.
