UNLABELLED Clinical evidence suggests that many cases of serious idiosyncratic drug-induced liver injury are mediated by the adaptive immune system in response to hepatic drug-protein adducts, also referred to as "drug-induced allergic hepatitis"; but detailed mechanistic proof has remained elusive due to the lack of animal models. We have hypothesized that(More)
UNLABELLED Liver eosinophilia has been associated with incidences of drug-induced liver injury (DILI) for more than 50 years, although its role in this disease has remained largely unknown. In this regard, it was recently shown that eosinophils played a pathogenic role in a mouse model of halothane-induced liver injury (HILI). However, the signaling events(More)
UNLABELLED Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is a major health issue, as it remains difficult to predict which new drugs will cause injury and who will be susceptible to this disease. This is due in part to the lack of animal models and knowledge of susceptibility factors that predispose individuals to DILI. In this regard, liver eosinophilia has often been(More)
