  • AbstractWith the increasing incidence of drug-induced liver disease, attempts are being made to better understand the mechanisms behind these frequently life-endangering reactions. Analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs are a major group exhibiting hepatotoxicity. We review research relating to these reactions, focusing on ultrastructural findings, which may contribute to the comprehension and possible avoidance of drug-induced liver disease. We also present some original observations on… CONTINUE READING
