N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) Clinical Studies
"Acetylcysteine is safe and effective in fulminant hepatic failure after paracetamol overdose."
[R Keays et al. Intravenous acetylcysteine in paracetamol induced fulminant hepatic failure: a prospective controlled trial. BMJ. 1991 Oct 26; 303(6809): 1026–1029.]
"We concluded that intraoperative NAC administration during the anhepatic phase of liver transplantation significantly increased recipient IL-4 plasma levels before and after reperfusion, and IL-10 plasma values before reperfusion (I-3). These enhancements seemed to be associated with a protective effect against reperfusion injury."
