An investigation of liver injury after oral administration of acetaminophen (N-acetyl-p-aminophenol; APAP) in various doses. The study involved 3 cohorts, including controls as well as animals treated with acetaminophen 50 and 300 mg/kg body weight. Animals were evaluated in these areas: blood and liver chemistry, serum drug and metabolite concentration, and liver pathology. Data are presented here for selected cohorts and measurements.

Procedures conducted:
• metabolic panel  Alanine transaminase (serum). Acetaminophen (several doses) vs. control.
• metabolite quantification  Glutathione.
• drug and metabolite quantification  Acetaminophen metabolite concentrations (serum) and liver protein homeostasis. Baseline vs. acetaminophen (several doses, several timepoints).
• histopathology  Liver histopathology, necrosis, injury after acetaminophen vs. control. 18h fast.
