Q&A With Ayako Suzuki From the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System: Using Data to Learn More About Drug Induced Liver Injury

As researchers look to learn more about drug induced liver injury sometimes looking at one patient alone cannot determine the potential causes of the condition. A recent preliminary study looked at what might be a "hidden pattern," to help patients.

Ayako Suzuki, MD, MS, MPH, from the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System discussed the work of her study during Digestive Disease Week in Washington DC. Suzuki said her study focused on host factors and drug properties to see why some patients may be more likely to develop the condition than others. Other factors she looked at were age and gender as part of the data field for the research.
