Primary Investigator:
Mark Silverberg, MD
Enrolment: Ongoing

Objective:
The objective is to assess the composition of the microbiome in patients with and without PSC, IBD patients without PSC (Ulcerative colitis and colonic Crohn’s disease) and healthy controls.

Expectation:
This research may lead to a better understanding of why the disease occurs and what role the gut microbiome and other markers play in PSC and/or IBD.

Eligibility: Anyone who has a confirmed diagnosis of Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis and/or IBD (either Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative Colitis). Also, if you do not have IBD (i.e. Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative colitis) and do not have a family history of IBD and are willing to participate as a healthy control, your help would be greatly appreciated.
