Reply to the ‘Comment on “Acetylcysteine in paracetamol poisoning: a perspective of 45 years of use”’ by M. E. Mullins, M. C. Yarema, M. L. A. Sivilotti, M. Thompson, D. A. Algren, M. C. Beuhler and C. P. Holstege, Toxicol. Res., 2019, 8, DOI: 10.1039/C9TX00158A
Mullins et al. made a comment on our article (DOI: 10.1039/C9TX00002J) stating they noticed the omission of the one-bag, standard concentration protocol which is shared by several centers in North America when we discussed IV acetylcysteine protocols. In this reply we clarify that we did not include this methodology as it is a technical adaption of the way in which a 2-bag NAC regimen in administered and there is insufficient comparative data with other regimens.
