This is a 5-year, longitudinal, observational study of patients with PBC designed to specifically address important clinical questions that remain incompletely answered from registration trials. In addition to the study database, a bio specimen repository will also be included so that translational studies of genomics and biomarkers of response may be performed.

Further study details as provided by Target PharmaSolutions, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate PBC treatment regimens being used in clinical practice [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
  • Examine populations underrepresented in phase III clinical trials [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
  • Examine biochemical response and its association with long term outcomes [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
  • Estimate adverse event frequency and severity and describe management practices [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

Participants enrolled in TARGET-PBC will be invited to participate in the optional Biorepository Specimen Bank (BSB). Blood samples for biomarker and DNA/RNA assays will be collected on a voluntary basis and participation in this project will not affect participation in the main study.

Blood samples for exploratory genetic and biomarker studies can be used for research purposes to identify potential biomarkers predictive of PBC diagnosis, assess correlates of response to PBC treatment (in terms of mode of action, efficacy, dose, safety and tolerability), understand factors influencing disease progression, determine how best to monitor and treat PBC, aid in the development of a new medical products, or explore complications of PBC and treatment.
