Acetaminophen (AP) is a widely-used analgesic agent that has been linked to human liver and kidney disease with prolonged or high-dose usage. In rodents, the target organs that are affected include liver, kidney, and the olfactory mucosa. AP toxicity requires cytochrome P450(CYP)-mediated metabolic activation, and the isozymes CYP1A2, 2E1, and 3A are known to activate AP in the human. In the present study, we determined that olfactory mucosal toxicity of AP was not different between the Cyp1a2… CONTINUE READING
