Clinical features, risk factors, and prognostic markers of drug-induced liver injury in patients with stevens-johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis
Conclusion: DILI usually occurs in patients with SJS/TEN. Pre-existing liver disease, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia are independent risk factors for DILI in patients with SJS/TEN. High serum total bilirubin and creatinine levels may be useful prognostic markers for DILI in patients with SJS/TEN. (Source: Indian Journal of Dermatology)

Vitamin D Receptor gene polymorphisms taq-1 and cdx-1 in female pattern hair loss
Conclusion: Taq-1 and Cdx-1 can be considered as risk factors for FPHL. They may play role in disease persistence rather than disease initiation. This association may be explained by failure of new anagen growth and decreased proliferation of hair follicle stem cells. Further studies are recommended to confirm current findings.
