    Abstract : The aims of this study were to assess the occurrence of gallbladder abnormalities and dysfunction, to evaluate clinically useful biomarkers for premalignancy and malignancy in gallbladder epithelium and to assess presence of pancreatic duct changes and early pancreatic abnormalities in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). In paper I and III we investigated presence of gallbladder abnormalities in 286 patients with PSC treated at Karolinska University Hospital, Huddinge, between 1970 and 2005. READ MORE
