Representation of Efavirenz mediated Drug Induced Liver Injury (DILI) Using Quantitative Systems Toxicology (QST)

Conference: ACoP
Software: DILIsym®
Division: DILIsym Services


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 elevations1. To understand the hepatotoxicity mechanisms underlying clinically observed liver signals, efavirenz was represented
in DILIsym®, a QST model of DILI.
