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 patient organisation for anyone affected by primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC)

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.
