Free database of drugs associated with liver injury available from NIH - Scope (blog) | Organ Donation & Transplant Matters Resources | Scoop.it

This report via Scope (a blog) is about the free database of drugs associated with liver injury that is now available online via the NIH in the United States.

 

As drug-induced liver injury is the leading cause of acute liver failure in the United States, accounting for at least half of all cases, this is an important addition to online resources. Of note in the severe forms of acute liver injury liver transplantation may be required.
