Working to end PSC

We're here to help anyone affected by PSC and to drive PSC research towards a cure

PSC Support is the leading UK-based organisation for anyone affected by primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). We’re here to help, whether you are a patient, family member, healthcare provider or researcher.

 

PSC is a rare, immune-mediated liver disease that can affect anyone, at any age. PSC is complex and current evidence suggests that people with a genetic makeup may be susceptible to some sort of (as yet unknown) environmental trigger, which causes their immune system to effectively 'attack' the bile ducts.

 

PSC Support is working to improve the lives of people affected by PSC by providing support and information, campaigning to improve the care we receive, and funding critical research to find effective PSC treatments.
