A Multicenter Collaboration To Study PSC In Children
Mark Deneau, MD, MS, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, University of Utah, Primary Children’s Hospital, Salt Lake City, UT
Amount Awarded: $60,000 over two years.
Researching PSC in children is a challenge. The disease affects enough children that it is a regular problem encountered in liver and inflammatory bowel disease clinics, but is rare enough that no single hospital or physician can gather enough patients to become experts in managing the disease. We all see 5 or 6 patients with PSC, but we need to see hundreds to become true experts, something no single center can do. We must work together to learn how PSC behaves in children, and how to treat it.
