About the book

The liver plays a central role in the complex construct of the human body. Its many and diverse functions are intertwined with all major metabolic pathways. As a multitude of substances and external agents are processed, stored, and used by the liver, it comes to no surprise that a multitude of factors can potentially harm its function. Liver toxicity manifests in various forms and can be caused by medical drugs, commercial products either associated with individual lifestyle or industry-related processes, environmental factors as well as substance abuse.

Breakthrough research is constantly published and provides important information on the advances made to identify, counteract and deter the effects of these various threats towards the functioning of the liver. Our aim through this volume is to disseminate up-to-date information on a range of different topics related to liver toxicity, from recent and ongoing clinical studies, to the molecular mechanisms that facilitate the nocive interactions. We will intend to dedicate space for classic drug or alcohol induced hepatic toxicity, as well as the various environmental and industrial agents that influence liver function, presenting recent data and potential management updates.
