Objective: In recent years, paracetamol has been shown to have toxic effects on the kidneys. Sialic acid (SA), an important component of the cell membranes, increases in many pathological conditions. This study aimed to investigate the effects of different doses of paracetamol on the kidney tissue and serum total SA (TSA) and lipid-bound SA (LSA) levels.
