Drug-induced liver damage is a pressing problem of modern hepatology and accounts for more than 10% of all adverse drug reactions. In Ukraine, the incidence of hepatotoxicity among hospitalized patients is 4-6%. Studies of American authors have found that more than 50% of cases of acute liver failure and 2-5% of cases of jaundice are the result of adverse drug reactions. Due to the rapid growth of the range of medications over the past 25 years, a 12-fold increase in drug hepatotoxicity has been registered.
