American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases/FDA/PhRMA Hepatotoxicity Workshop

A multidisciplinary conference was held in February 2001 to discuss drug-induced liver injury. Topics included preclinical mechanistic studies and models for human hepatotoxicity, early clinical signals in controlled trials, and strategies to improve postmarketing surveillance of marketed drug products that may be potential hepatotoxins.

As a result of this conference, the Division of Over the Counter Drugs and OPDRA evaluated the problem of acetaminophen-related hepatotoxicity in preparation for a future public meeting. For more information, see Drug-Induced Liver Toxicity.
