This is a quite helpful article. I never had heard anything about this disease but while I read the article I couldn't stop to remember my wife's grandfather. Now, I guess that he died because of PBC. His symptoms were the same that are described in this article and after a while, he developed cirrhosis. The pain that he experienced was terrible and I remember that he couldn't understand why he developed cirrhosis if he never drank alcoholic drinks and he never smoked. May be... and just may be, he could has a better life if we had the knowledge of PBC.
