I'm sorry but no there is no known cure for alagilles however there are a lot of effective medications being used for the itch and also biliary diversion surgery.there is also a new drug being trialed in the uk just now is very hopeful that its the breakthrough for the itch that we have all been looking for. So there is hope but no wonder drug or quick fix I'm afraid .
