The goal of the ILIAD protocol is to create a database and bank of biological specimens (DNA, plasma, lymphocytes) from individuals with severe drug-induced liver injury (DILI) due to isoniazid (INH), phenytoin (Dilantin®), amoxicillin/clavulanate (Augmentin®), minocycline, nitrofurantoin, trimethroprim/sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim®), or valproic acid (Depakote®), after January 1, 1994. This study is funded by the NIH/NIDDK.

The goal of this multicenter NIH study is to prospectively identify bona fide cases of liver injury due to drugs and complementary and alternative medications (CAM) within 6 months of onset. Clinical data, blood, DNA, and urine will be collected from affected patients and matched controls for mechanistic and genetic studies.
