This field has shown tremendous growth in recent years, primarily due to the recognition that drug-induced liver disease is the most common cause of liver failure and one of the major contributors to the withdrawal of drugs developed by the pharmaceutical industry. Drug-Induced Liver Disease, 3rd edition is a comprehensive reference that covers mechanisms of injury, diagnosis and management, major hepatotoxins, regulatory perspectives and much more. Written by highly respected authorities, this new edition is an updated and definitive reference for clinicians and scientists in academia, the pharmaceutical industry and government settings. This book contains 4 new chapters on key topics in the area and provides a current and extensive review of the latest developments concerning the toxicology, pharmacology, genetics and immunology of drug-induced liver disease.

Review quote

"This volume is a fascinating read for toxicologists interested in liver toxicity, since it provides an up-to-date view of the many mechanisms of hepatotoxicity... a must-have book which should be kept close at hand, in which case it will be opened regularly by toxicologists concerned with the development and safe use of medications in a practical context." --The British Toxicology Society Newsletter, 2008 (Review of 2nd edition)
