Diane Longo, Senior Scientist, presents, “Representation of Efavirenz-mediated Drug-Induced Liver Injury (DILI) Using Quantitative Systems Toxicology (QST)”
Efavirenz is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) used in combination with other agents to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Efavirenz treatment is associated with a low frequency of serum enzyme elevations. To understand the hepatotoxicity mechanisms underlying clinically observed liver signals, efavirenz was represented in DILIsym®, a QST model of DILI.
