From Dr Thomas Schiano, "BRIC is a liver disease that affects young people. it does not always require liver transplantation as long as the symptoms can be controlled medically. it can also be associated with conditions that affect the heart, kidneys and other organs."

Might suggest you talk with a liver specialist found at a teaching hospital in your area, usually on or near a college university.
I have been diagnosed with BRIC as well. Its hard to find people out there who have this condition. I am keen to find out more about the disease, I was just told that I had it at the end of last year. Would be interested to hear more about your story.
My name is Kip Justice. I live in Alabama, my son zach was diagnosed with bric today. So I have been trying to find out what I can about the disease. The main thing is all he has took is steroids, is there anything that would prevent what I would describe as a flair up of this.
Also, how far apart are the flair ups of the symptoms? How long do they last? His last bilirubin reading was 42, down from a 44, but he has been yellow for 3 weeks. He is 20 years old and is never sick, so mentally he is not taking this well.
I'm Siva from India and My brother Selva Kumar was affected by the liver disease called bric. 5 times he got the liver attack. Following are the time period for his liver attack. His age is 25
First attack - From JAN 2012 to MAR 2012 . Highest Bilurubin level - 36
Second attack - From JUL 2012 to OCT 2012. Highest Bilurubin level - 36
Third attack - from JUN 2013 to SEP 2013. Highest Bilurubin level - 30
Fourth attack - From JAN 2014 to APR 2014. Highest bilurubin - 36
Fifth attack - From SEP 2014 to till date. Now Bilurubin level is - 2.5
We did all the scan and there is no block in the bile duct and we did liver biopsy and we have result that for BRIC
