In brief: Early sxs of PBC

90% of pbc patients are female.
Age ranges 20-80, but typically patients are 40-60. The disease is world-wide, & affects asians, caucasians, jews, african. Family clustering is common in sisters, twins, daughters, mothers. While environmental factors can't be ignored, a strong immunogenetic background for pbc that runs in families is suggested. Early sxs: fatigue, itching +/- jaundice, RUQ pain.
