Is there a cure for PSC?
Not yet! While there are no effective medical treatments available for PSC today 78,79, research is flourishing and we have every confidence an effective treatment(s) will come. There are ongoing and planned clinical trials to test potential PSC drugs, and numerous PSC studies to better understand the disease.
For some patients who progress to having significant liver damage or symptoms that cannot be properly treated, liver transplant is an excellent option.
Despite there being no licensed drug for PSC:
- some people are prescribed UDCA
- our symptoms can be managed
