Hi there.

I know that 20mg/100g is the minimal dose of D-Galactosamine to be
injected to induce acute liver injury on rats.

I would like to know if there is a lethal dose, and if there is a 
relation between dose and liver recovery time.

Are there examples of long-lasting injuries? At what dose?

Thanks a lot.
