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.
