Comment on “What is the most appropriate dose of N acetylcysteine after massive acetaminophen overdose?” by Hendrickson et al.

TLDR
This 12 h SNAP regimen provides an evidence-based regimen with very low rates of adverse reactions, and the potential to increase early dosing with acetylcysteine without, in this view, major risk.

Paracetamol

Paracetamol is an analgesic and antipyretic agent which was first marketed for use as a drug in the U.K. in 1956. It has since become popular with the medical profession and the general public as an

Effects of acetaminophen on estrogen-responsive alkaline phosphatase in Ishikawa endometrial cancer cells

TLDR
Effects of Acetaminophen on Estrogen-Responsive Alkaline Phosphatase Activity in Ishikawa Endometrial Cancer Cells is inhibited and that is dependent on the carrier and removal status of the receptors is unaffected.

Exogenous supplementation of N-acetylcysteine Can Reduce Hepatotoxicity Induced by Ascites Fluid (Cell-Free) Adsorbed Over Protein-A-Containing Staphylococcus aureus Cowan-I Without Compromising Its Antitumor Effect†

TLDR
N-acetylcysteine (NAC) was used as an exogenous source to provide –SH contents to reduce hepatotoxicity and mortality induced by ad-AF treatment, and this study has shown that exogenous supplementation of NAC protects the host from the enhanced mortality and hepatot toxicity induced byad-AF.

Paracetamol overdose complicated by posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES)

TLDR
There is paucity of literature linking paracetamol to posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), but there is evidence that it may be related to acute liver and kidney injuries.

Paracetamol

TLDR
It is demonstrated that paracetamol was the metabolite of phenacetin and acetanilide responsible for the analgesic and antipyretic properties of these 2 compounds.

Hepatoprotective effect of DL-methionine on diclofenac-induced hepatotoxicity in albino rats: an experimental study

TLDR
DL-Methionine significantly prevented the rise in transaminases levels produced by hepatotoxic doses of the positive control drug.

Mechanisms of Drug-Induced Hepatotoxicity.

Huntington's Disease: Pathogenic Mechanisms and Therapeutic Targets.

TLDR
Specific aspects of HD pathogenesis are focused on, including oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, glutamatergic dysfunction and neuroinflammation, where there are substantial bodies of experimental evidence.

Chitohexaose protects against acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity in mice

TLDR
Significant protection mediated by chitohexaose (Chtx) in mice challenged with a lethal dose of APAP is demonstrated and Chtx being a small molecular weight linear carbohydrate offers promise for clinical management of liver failure associated with APAP overdose.
