A novel mechanism for the enhancement of acetaminophen hepatotoxicity by phenobarbital.


Pretreatment of mice with multiple doses of phenobarbital (PB) potentiates N-acetyl-para-aminophenol (APAP) hepatotoxicity through induction of cytochrome P-450, thus increasing the formation of APAP-reactive metabolites. The objective of this report is to investigate the effect of a single oral dose of PB on APAP hepatotoxicity in mice. PB was administered… (More)
