Biliary Cirrhosis Medications

Definition of Biliary Cirrhosis:

Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC) is a chronic liver disease that slowly destroys the bile ducts within the liver (intrahepatic bile ducts). Liver inflammation over a period of years may cause scarring which leads to cirrhosis. PBC is NOT alcohol or drug related, and it is NOT contagious.

The name "Primary Biliary Cirrhosis" is somewhat deceiving since cirrhosis only occurs in the last stage of the disease (stage 4) after many years of inflammation. With early diagnosis and proper medications, most with PBC will never reach the cirrhosis stage of PBC.

PBC is also called "Chronic Nonsuppurative Destructive Cholangitis" and "Primary Autoimmune Cholangitis." However, these alternative terms are not widely accepted and therefore not in use.
