Living With PSC

Aug 16, 2023

PSC Partners Seeking a Cure is pleased to present Living With PSC, a podcast moderated by Niall McKay. Each month, this podcast explores the latest research and knowledge about primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), a rare liver disease. From patient stories, to the latest research updates from PSC experts, to collaborations that are necessary to find better treatments and a cure, this podcast has it all!

In episode 39 of the Living with PSC Podcast, Host Niall McKay has an in-depth conversation with Dr. Palak Trivedi, BSc (hons), MBBS, MRCP Gastro (UK), PhD, Associate Professor, and Honorary Consultant Hepatologist, University of Birmingham, UK. They talk about the recurrence of PSC in people who have received a liver transplant. They also discuss the differences between PSC and PBC, clinical trials searching for treatments and a cure, studies exploring the cause of PSC, and how IBD, particularly colitis, may reduce the risk of post-transplant recurrence.

"In retrospective studies, our group and others around the world have found that people who have colitis and have had their large bowel removed (and have kept their stoma), lower their risk of developing recurrence of PSC," says Dr. Trivedi.
