An investigation of liver injury after administration of acetaminophen (N-acetyl-p-aminophenol; APAP) in various doses. The study involved 8 cohorts, including controls as well as animals treated with acetaminophen 30, 100, 200, 300, 600, 900, and 1200 mg/kg body weight. Animals were evaluated in these areas: blood and liver chemistry, liver function, and alterations in liver morphology. Data are presented here for selected cohorts and measurements.

Procedures conducted:
• metabolic panel  Blood urea nitrogen, alanine transaminase, aspartate transaminase (serum), liver enzyme homeostasis. Acetaminophen (several doses) vs. control, several timepoints post-Rx. 18h fast.
• histopathology  Liver histopathology, necrosis after acetaminophen vs. control. 18h fast.
• metabolite quantification  Liver protein homeostasis. Acetaminophen vs. control. 18h fast.
• biomarker quantification  Liver cytochrome isoforms. Acetaminophen vs. control. 18h fast.
• organ weights  Liver weight after acetaminophen (several doses) vs. control. 18h fast.

Mice: inbred w/CC7   37 strains   ♂   age 8-17wks   8 experimental groups
