Identification of biomarkers for acetaminophen toxicity

Description:
Acetaminophen is a popular over-the-counter medication for the treatment of pain and fever. While the medication is safe and effective when taken in normal dosages, when taken in amounts greater than those recommended the drug has been shown to be toxic, most notably to the liver. This study is looking to identify markers in your blood that may signify whether or not liver injury has taken place.

Medication Under Study:
Acetaminophen

Full study title:
Identification of New Mechanistic Biomarkers of Adverse Responses to Acetaminophen
