- Drug-induced nephrotoxicity is a common source of acute kidney injury (AKI) and a condition that complicates clinical outcomes of vulnerable patients.
- Drugs cause nephrotoxicity by various cellular mechanisms, including mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and others.
- Predicting the toxicity and injury mechanisms of drugs remains a challenge.
- We utilized a quantitative systems toxicology (QST) model to evaluate the nephrotoxicity and underlying mechanisms of two positive (cisplatin and gentamicin) and one negative (acetaminophen) control exemplar compounds
