  • Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a chronic cholestatic autoimmune liver disease characterized by selective destruction of the intrahepatic bile ducts and highly specific serum anti-mitochondrial autoantibodies (AMA). Several studies have attempted to determine the cytokine pattern characterizing PBC, yet no definitive data have been gathered. The present study was designed to evaluate pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1beta, IL-6, TNFalpha), soluble IL-2 receptor (sIL-2R, e.g. soluble CD25), and… CONTINUE READING
