There has never been a more exciting time in the history of PSC research. There may be studies taking place in your own hospital, national and international studies through UKPSC, or qualitative studies looking at the psychological burden of PSC and how patients can be better supported.
Taking part in research can range from filling in a short questionnaire, giving blood or another sample, giving extra biopsies during your colonoscopy, to trying out a drug that is being developed for PSC. We can't stress enough how important your effort to help is: PSC is rare and as many of us as possible need to be part of the movement to find a treatment that works, once and for all.
Together, we can make a difference. How will you help?
