Risk stratification and treatment of primary biliary cholangitis

63-70

Javier Martínez, Lara Aguilera, Agustín Albillos,

Primary biliary cholangitis is a chronic liver disorder characterized by progressive cholestasis that may evolve to liver cirrhosis. While ursodeoxycholic acid is the treatment of choice, around 30% of patients do not respond to this therapy. These patients have a poorer prognosis, hence should be identified early in order to be offered therapy options. Along these lines, improved understanding of the condition's pathophysiology has allowed the development of newer drugs, including obeticholic acid and fibrates. This review offers a perspective on risk stratification and treatment for these patients, from ursodeoxycholic acid to second-line treatments.
