BACKGROUND & AIMS The biochemical response to ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) in primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) correlates with the long-term prognosis and thus could allow the identification of the patients needing new therapeutic approaches. Due to variation in both endpoints and studied populations, there is still no full agreement on the definition of the biochemical response. The aim of our study was to determine, in a population of patients with only early-stage disease, the best biochemical… CONTINUE READING
