This is an observational study. This study is for men and women who have Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC), which is a chronic, or long-term, disease of the liver characterized by damaged bile ducts due to inflammation. Bile is a digestive liquid that is made in the liver that helps the small intestines digest fats and fatty vitamins.
The purpose of this study to observe any treatment for PBC in a large number of people in a “real life” setting. Researchers are interested in observing how these treatments, lifestyle changes, and counseling work in patients who are treated by their doctors in routine practice. Any treatments for PBC will be chosen by the participant and the study doctor. No specific treatments will be prescribed just by participating in this study.
If an individual agrees to participate in this study, their past (up to 3 years before) and future (up to 5 years) medical records will be collected.
In addition, participants will have the opportunity to participate in optional portions in this study:
Participation in the study will last for up to 5 years.
