LiverTox – New resource from the National Library of Medicine

LIVERTOX provides up-to-date, accurate, and easily accessed information on the diagnosis, cause, frequency, patterns, and management of liver injury attributable to prescription and nonprescription medications, herbals and dietary supplements.  LIVERTOX also includes a case registry that will enable scientific analysis and better characterization of the clinical patterns of liver injury.  The LIVERTOX website provides a comprehensive resource for physicians and their patients, and for clinical academicians and researchers who specialize in idiosyncratic drug induced hepatotoxicity.

LiverTox is a joint effort within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the Liver Disease Research Branch of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS) of the NLM.
