Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) is a slowly progressing liver disease that lacks an ideal biomarker, which could predict disease progression. A biomarker is a measurable indicator of the presence or severity of a disease state. For example, body temperature is a biomarker of fever.

In this presentation, Dr. John Eaton, an Assistant Professor of Medicine and transplant Hepatologist from Mayo Clinic, discusses in detail the importance, current biomarkers of, and ongoing approaches to develop novel biomarkers for PSC.
