The article presents information on abstracts related to liver. An abstract presents information on fatigue in primary biliary cirrhosis 15 associated with symptoms of autonomic dysfunction. Fatigue is the severest symptom experienced by those with primary biliary cirrhosis. The pathogenesis of fatigue is unknown although recent work by our group suggests it is associated with autonomic dysfunction (AD). Previous studies in those with cirrhotic liver disease have shown AD occurs frequently, it is however generally not considered in the clinical management of patients. In a large cohort of well characterized patients with PBC, the researchers investigated whether symptoms commonly described by patients with AD are seen more frequently in patients with the fatigue associated with PBC.
