BACKGROUND & AIMS: For patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) with features of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), treatment with ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) alone or in combination with immunosuppression is controversial. Little is known about the factors associated with initial response to therapy or outcome. We performed a retrospective analysis of treatment strategies and factors associated with outcomes of patients with PBC-AIH.
