Description
Acetaminophen is an analgesic antipyretic derivative of acetanilide. It has weak anti-inflammatory properties and is used as a common analgesic and pain medication, but may cause liver, blood cell and kidney damage. Elevated doses of acetaminophen activate the constitutive androstane receptor (CAR), an orphan receptor member of the nuclear receptor superfamily of transcription factors.
