In this video series, Kris Kowdley, MD, and Seth Sclair, MD, share insight into changes in management of patients with primary biliary cholangitis. This progressive, autoimmune disease was previously referred to as primary biliary cirrhosis. One notable change discussed is approval of obeticholic acid for use in adults with an inadequate response to ursodeoxycholic acid, or as monotherapy in adults unable to tolerate ursodeoxycholic acid.
