Primary Biliary Cirrhosis

What is the Long Term Prognosis for Primary Biliary Cirrhosis?

Because doctors are able to diagnose Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC) very early, prognosis is much better than it was in the past since treatment can begin before severe damage occurs to the liver.

Studies are continuing to be done to find the cause of PBC and to understand this disease which has been known for more than 100 years. Through drug therapy trials, new and better treatments will be developed to control liver damage and lessen the symptoms.
