andpathologicalphenotypesandthecurrentabsenceofspeci?c biomarkers. This makes the diagnosis of drug-induced liver injury an uncertain process, requiring a high degree of aware- ness of the condition and the careful exclusion of alternative aetiologies of liver disease. Idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity can be severe, leading to a particularly serious variety of acute liver failure for which no effective therapy has yet been developed. These Clinical Practice Guidelines summarize the available evi- dence on risk factors, diagnosis, management and risk (...) . Clinical trials produce reliable information about the devel- opment of abnormal liver biochemistries and DILI if the inci- dence is high.

Assessment of the emetogenic potential of antineoplastic therapy is the first step in the decision of whether or not, and to what extent, to provide antiemetic prophylaxis. The scope of this guideline is limited to the assessment of antineoplastic therapy emetogenicity in the acute phase (within 24 hours (...) of administration of an antineoplastic agent). Its scope does not include anticipatory, breakthrough or delayed phase AINV, or nausea and vomiting that is related to radiation therapy, disease, co- incident conditions or end-of-life care.
