Description Usage Format Source References See Also

Description

This data is from the Mayo Clinic trial in primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) of the liver conducted between 1974 and 1984. A total of 424 PBC patients, referred to Mayo Clinic during that ten-year interval met eligibility criteria for the randomized placebo controlled trial of the drug D-penicillamine, but only the first 312 cases in the data set participated in the randomized trial. Therefore, the data here are for the 312 patients with largely complete data.
