Successful registry appeal garners strong support

On October 6, 2020, the PSC Partners Registry team sent out an email alert regarding a Harvard Brigham and Women’s Hospital nutrition study that urgently needed more participants. This appeal was sent to adult U.S. registry participants and urged all who were interested to contact the Harvard researchers to find out more. Recipients responded in droves with emails and phone messages to the researchers – to the extent that the Harvard team had to add additional staff!

Our New Registry Home!

Welcome to Our Upgraded Registry Site!   We are thrilled to welcome you to our new patient registry home. Our growing family of PSC participants needed a new place to live, so – rather than just redecorate the old place – we decided to build a whole new home from the ground up! And it’s now mobile-friendly, too!

COVID-19 and PSC Survey

We are witnessing a surge in COVID-19 registries for liver diseases, but none are PSC-specific. We believe it will be important to collect information on those of us who have/had/suspect having COVID-19. PSC Partners has thus launched (April 2020) a patient-reported COVID-19 PSC survey.

The PSC Partners Patient Registry Origin Story

Little did we know that attending a workshop in Washington D.C. in 2010 would be instrumental in moving PSC Partners towards the unimaginable patient-generated and patient-driven research. In 2010, it was unthinkable that our rare primary sclerosing cholangitis could create a loud enough voice to have a measurable impact on PSC research. In 2009, PSC Partners, in its fifth year of existence, had awarded its first research grants, and we were excitedly searching for more ways of creating PSC awareness.
