Acetaminophen, or Tylenol, is commonly used in the United States to eliminate aches and pains and reduce fever with few side effects. However, the drug is the leading cause of acute liver failure in the United States, and if liver damage is severe enough, the only lifesaving treatment is a liver transplant. A novel method developed at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis at UT helps determine which patients will benefit from transplantation.

It’s where the buffalo still roam in Yellowstone National Park and the snow falls in September—the state of Wyoming is a draw for skiers and hard to imagine as hot…really hot. Scientists say nearly 36-million years ago, there is evidence breadfruit trees grew there. They only grow in the tropics today. Deep in the tropical rainforest of Wyoming all those millions of years ago lived a creature named Patriomanis,…
