What is Primary Biliary Cirrhosis and how dangerous can it be? Can it progress to the liver cirrhosis?

Loading...


Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a disease characterized by inflammatory destruction of the small bile ducts within the liver. It eventually leads to cirrhosis of the liver. The cause of PBC is unknown, but because of the presence of autoantibodies, it is generally thought to be an autoimmune disease. The time from diagnosis to end-stage liver disease can range from a few months to 20 years depending upon when the diagnosis is first made.
