The Canadian PBC Society is a non-profit, national organization with regional groups made up of patients and other concerned individuals. Their mission is to provide support and encouragement, education, information, and fundraising for PBC-related medical research. A major goal of the Society is to support and fund research in treatment and basic causation. We are currently supporting research into the Genetics of PBC- this may open up a new avenue of prevention, cause, treatment and possibly a cure. PBC is a slowly progressive bile duct disease, which results from chronic inflammation of the small intrahepatic bile ducts. For some, the inflammation leads to bile duct loss and liver scarring which may, after many years, become extensive and lead to cirrhosis. It is not yet known what causes PBC.
