How to measure and interpret DILI information and make correct diagnoses

Serious drug-induced liver injury (SDILI) is a major problem for drug development and clinical care.  Key information used in detection of liver injury caused by drugs includes serum activities of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP), plus total bilirubin (TBL) concentration. Time courses of changes of variables in selected patients, and a well-constructed clinical narrative help greatly. This academic-industry-government international conference will discuss new findings and thinking about DILI, including presentations by experts in clinical hepatology, toxicology, and other fields, and lively discussions with all registrants.  We look forward to your participation!
