The objective of this study is to explore the hepatoprotective activity of fruits of Garcinia pedunculata in paracetamol-induced liver toxicity in rats. Paracetamol-induced hepatotoxicity was evaluated by an increase in serum transaminases and alkaline phosphatase activity. Histopathological observation showed extensive disturbance in the liver cytoarchitecture in comparison to normal control liver sections. Pre-treatment with aqueous extract of fruits of G. pedunculata prevented the…

The modern pharmacology of paracetamol: therapeutic actions, mechanism of action, metabolism, toxicity and recent pharmacological findings
The result is that paracetamol does not suppress the severe inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis and acute gout but does inhibit the lesser inflammation resulting from extraction of teeth and is also active in a variety of inflammatory tests in experimental animals.
Pathogenesis and Mechanisms of Liver Cell Necrosis
Acetaminophen poisoning and toxicity.
Although toxicity and fatalities have occurred in the adolescent age group, only one death in younger children has been recorded and the question must be raised as to how many cases of "jaundice of unknown etiology" are actually due to this drug.
Acetaminophen‐induced acute liver failure: Results of a United States multicenter, prospective study
In conclusion, acetaminophen hepatotoxicity far exceeds other causes of acute liver failure in the United States, and education of patients, physicians, and pharmacies to limit high‐risk use settings is recommended.
