D-(+)-Galactosamine hydrochloride is a powerful inhibitor of hepatic RNA synthesis.


D-(+)-Galactosamine (D-chondrosamine) is used with lipopolysaccharides (LPS) to induce models of acute hepatic failure (LPS/D-GalN-induced liver injury, hepatitis) for therapeutic research to find new drugs.


Increases the adherence of polymorphonuclear leukocytes to hepatic endothelial cells and induces superoxide production. Induces hepatic damage, causing macrophage infiltration.
