Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) causes significant patient morbidity and mortality, and is the most common reason for drug withdrawals. It is imperative to gain a thorough understanding of the underlying mechanisms of DILI to effectively predict and prevent these reactions.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of hepatic natural killer T (NKT) cells in the pathogenesis of HILI. The degrees of HILI were com…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
