Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to establish drug-induced liver injury databases in China, make criteria for Chinese drug-induced liver injury patients and evaluate the application of certain circulating miRNA in diagnosis or treatment of drug-induced liver injury.

Condition or disease
Drug-induced Liver Injury

Detailed Description:
Firstly, this study collects some retrospective data. Analyse these data and establish certain unique diagnostic criteria for Chinese. Then collect prospective data and validate the criteria. Otherwise,collect blood sample or other sample of the patients and study certain miRNA in diagnosis or treatment of drug-induced liver injury.

Study Type : Observational [Patient Registry]
Estimated Enrollment : 800 participants
Observational Model: Case Control
Target Follow-Up Duration: 3 Years
Official Title: Establishment of Drug-induced Liver Injury Databases and Application of Circulating miRNA
Study Start Date : May 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date : April 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date : April 2017

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. histological features of drug-induced liver injury obtained by liver biopsy [ Time Frame: within six months of the DILI onset date ]
    Liver biopsy is the main method

  2. clinical features of drug-induced liver injury assessed by serum parameters of liver function [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 3 weeks ]
    serum parameters of liver function is the focus

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
whole blood, serum,plasma,PBMC
