Compositions and Methods for Treating Or Inhibiting Liver Injury

The present invention relates to the discovery that acetylsalicylic acid (ASA or aspirin), salicylic acid (SA) and related salicylate esters and their pharmaceutically acceptable salts, when coadministered in effective amounts with a drug or other bioactive agent which typically (in the absence of the salicylate compound) produces significant hepatotoxicity as a secondary indication, will substantially reduce or even eliminate such hepatotoxicity. Favorable therapeutic intervention results from the use of the present invention having the effect of reducing hepatotoxicity associated with the administration of certain drugs and other bioactive agents and in certain instances of allowing the administration of higher doses of a compound which, without the coadministration, would produce hepatotoxicity which limits or even negates the therapeutic value of the compound.; The invention also relates inter alia to methods of inhibiting or reducing the likelihood of liver injury secondary to hepatitis, cirrhosis and a number of other disease states and conditions and further may be used to reduce the likelihood of a patient at risk or treating a patient for inter alia hepatitis, cirrhosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD), non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), cirrhosis and other disease states and conditions as otherwise described. Pharmaceutical compositions are also described.
