Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is an event that has a detrimental impact on drug development and patient safety; therefore the identification of novel biomarkers that are both sensitive and specific to the liver would have great benefit. Inflammation is known to be associated with human cases of DILI, and given the role of cytokines in modulating the inflammatory response, changes in cytokine expression patterns certainly show promise as potential biomarkers of DILI. Cytokines are interesting… CONTINUE READING
