Researchers are looking for people with PSC to take part in two new studies. The studies are looking at:
- the experience of patients with liver disease, including PSC
- the patient experience of itching related to PSC
There is no treatment involved in either of these studies and you can take part from the comfort of your own home.

Understanding cholestatic pruritus (itching in PSC)
A new research study is currently seeking individuals with pruritus (itch) associated with cholestatic liver disease in the UK. The study team is interested in speaking with people who experience pruritus, also known as itching, associated with cholestatic liver disease.
The purpose of this study is to understand the patient experience of pruritus (itching). The researchers will also ask you to complete up to 3 surveys related to the pruritus to learn if they contain information and questions that are relevant and clear. There is no treatment involved.
To be eligible to participate in this study, individuals must:
