UK-PBC is an ambitious, UK-wide project aimed at improving our understanding of PBC and the way it impacts on the lives of patients. The UK-PBC project is a collaborative venture between NHS Trusts across the UK, patient groups and UK and international companies. All the participants share the goal of improving the lives of PBC patients through the development and implementation into practice of new approaches to treatment.
More than 5,000 PBC patients are currently enrolled in the UK-PBC Project with more patients joining every week. These patients form the UK-PBC Research Cohort, which is the largest group of patients participating in PBC-related research, anywhere in the world.
