EASL Congress 2024 has now ended!


Scientific highlights of Day 2

The Future of Hepatology session, organised in collaboration with DHILI, explored the challenges and future prospects in managing drug-induced liver injury (DILI).
Despite its rarity, DILI is a major cause of acute liver failure worldwide. The session discussed the interplay of host and drug factors that contribute to DILI, and highlighted common drug causes ranging from older medications to new biologics.
Ongoing international studies aimed at identifying predictive and diagnostic biomarkers were a key focus, emphasising the importance of understanding 4 individual risk factors for rapid and specific DILI diagnosis. The symposium underscored the need for continued research and collaboration to improve DILI management and patient outcomes.

Do we care enough about the importance of DILI/DHILI? Come to find out at the next #EASLStudio, with our faculty Guruprasad Padur Aithal, Paul Hayashi, Maribel Lucena, and Paul Watkins!
