Healthy | A Clinical Study to Explore Biomarkers for Drug-induced Liver Injury (DILI)

Healthy research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

This study has an open-label, one-sequence, multiple drug administration design. The purpose of this study is as follows; - To evaluate the change of liver function according to glutathione s-transferase (GST) genotype after the multiple administration of amoxicillin/clavulanate. - To evaluate the intrinsic metabolite, human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genotype, and microRNA (miRNA) based on liver function change as the candidate biomarker for DILI.
