Table 3: Metabolites with strong Pearson’s correlations to log2ALT and hepatic necrosis scores. Pearson’s rank correlations were based on the correlations between metabolites and log2ALT and hepatic necrosis scores at all dose levels (control, LD, HD) and metabolites at high dose (HD) from all time points to discover good injury biomarkers.
