Event Description

This one-day ACMT symposium will bring together some of the world’s leading experts on various aspects of drug-induced liver injury (DILI). With an emphasis on areas of controversy and the latest research relevant to clinical toxicology, topics will include the definition, diagnosis, and treatment of DILI, as well as an assessment of DILI due to complementary and alternative medicine and drugs of abuse. The lectures will be interspersed with engaging debates and a case-oriented panel discussion. The faculty for this exciting virtual program will share their historical, clinical, and research-based expertise and perspective so participants will gain insight that they can apply to their specific practices. 

Objectives
  • Define DILI with current terminology and understanding.
  • Describe the pathophysiology of DILI.
  • Discuss current diagnostic indicators of DILI.
  • Enumerate some therapeutic controversies in the treatment of specific types of DILI
