Effect of paracetamol (acetaminophen) on gastric ionic fluxes and potential difference in man. (1/1789)

Paracetamol has replaced aspirin as the analgesic of choice in many situations. The major reason is the damaging effect of aspirin on gastric mucosa. Alterations in gastric ionic fluxes and potential difference provide measures of aspirin-induced structural damage. We studied the effect of large doses of paracetamol (acetaminophen 2-0 g) on gastric ionic fluxes in man. In addition, the effect of 2-0 g paracetamol on gastric potential difference was compared with that of 600 mg aspirin. In contrast with salicylates, paracetamol caused no significant alteration in movement of H+ and Na+ ions over control periods. Aspirin causes a significant fall in transmucosal potential difference (PD) across gastric mucosa of 15 mv, while paracetamol cuased no significant change. Paracetamol in a dose four times that recommended does not alter gastric ionic fluxes or potential difference. These studies support choice of paracetamol as analgesic over aspirin where damage to gastric mucosa may be critical.  (+info)

Incidence of analgesic nephropathy in Berlin since 1983. (2/1789)

BACKGROUND: Phenacetin was removed from the German market in 1986 and was replaced mainly in analgesic compounds by acetaminophen. Our objective was to examine the effect of this measure on the incidence of analgesic nephropathy in light of the changes in other end-stage renal diseases. METHODS: We therefore compared the proportion of renal diseases in all patients starting dialysis treatment during three 18-month periods: 4/1982-9/1983 (n=57); 1/1991-6/1992 (n=81); and 10/1995-3/1997 (n=76). RESULTS: On the one hand, the proportion of end-stage analgesic nephropathy decreased significantly from 30% in 1981-1982 to 21% in 1991-1992 and 12% in 1995-1997 (P=0.01). On the other hand, type II diabetes increased significantly from 7% to 22% (P=0.01) and 29%, (P=0.001). Using the chi2 distribution test to analyze the frequencies of seven diseases at three different time intervals, however, showed that the changes in renal-disease proportions between 1982-1983, 1991-1992 and 1995-1997 were not significantly independent. There was a significant median age increase from 52 years (CI0.95 44-58) in 1982-1983 to 63 (CI0.95 55-67) in 1991-1992 and 63 (CI0.95 60-66) in 1995-1997 (P=0.003) for all patients starting dialysis but not for those with analgesic nephropathy [59 (55-71) vs 64 (53-67) and 61 (50-72); n.s.]. CONCLUSION: The decrease of end-stage analgesic nephropathy since 1983 may be partially due to the removal of phenacetin from the German market in 1986. However, considering the general increase in numbers of dialysis patients, their higher age and the increased incidence of type II diabetes, the decrease in analgesic nephropathy is not a statistically significant independent variable. Altered admittance policies for dialysis treatment have yielded a new pattern of renal-disease proportion which interferes with changes in the incidence of analgesic nephropathy.  (+info)

Comparison of effects of acetaminophen on liver microsomal drug metabolism and lipid peroxidation in rats and mice. (3/1789)

Studies were conducted to determine the in vivo effect of acetaminophen (AAP) on the lipid peroxidation, drug metabolizing enzyme activity and microsomal electron transfer system of rat and mouse liver. AAP was found to inhibit ethylmorphine N-demethylase activity in the presence of NADPH and this inhibition of the enzyme was due to decrease in cytochrome P-450 content, but not due to change in lipid peroxidation in liver microsomes. Kinetical data showed that AAP administration had no effect on Km values of ethylmorphine N-demethylase, however, a decrease in the Vmax values was seen in rats and mice. There was no significant effect of AAP on both NADPH-cytochrome c reductase and the content of cytochrome b5 3 hours after this administration to rats and mice. On the other hand, AAP induced a significant decrease in NADH-ferricyanide reductase in mice, but not in rats. The greatest decrease in cytochrome P-450 observed among the components of the liver microsomal electron transfer system of rats and mice.  (+info)

Postoperative behavioral outcomes in children: effects of sedative premedication. (4/1789)

BACKGROUND: Although multiple studies document the effect of sedative premedication on preoperative anxiety in children, there is a paucity of data regarding its effect on postoperative behavioral outcomes. METHODS: After screening for recent stressful life events, children undergoing anesthesia and surgery were assigned randomly to receive either 0.5 mg/kg midazolam in 15 mg/kg acetaminophen orally (n = 43) or 15 mg/kg acetaminophen orally (n = 43). Using validated measures of anxiety, children were evaluated before and after administration of the intervention and during induction of anesthesia. On postoperative days 1, 2, 3, 7, and 14, the behavioral recovery of the children was assessed using the Post Hospitalization Behavior Questionnaire. RESULTS: The intervention group demonstrated significantly lower anxiety levels compared with the placebo group on separation to the operating room and during induction of anesthesia (F[1,77] = 3.95, P = 0.041). Using a multivariate logistic regression model, the authors found that the presence or absence of postoperative behavioral changes was dependent on the group assignment (R = 0.18, P = 0.0001) and days after operation (R = -0.20, P = 0.0001). Post hoc analysis demonstrated that during postoperative days 1-7, a significantly smaller number of children in the midazolam group manifested negative behavioral changes. At week 2 postoperatively, however, there were no significant differences between the midazolam and placebo groups. CONCLUSIONS: Children who are premedicated with midazolam before surgery have fewer negative behavioral changes during the first postoperative week.  (+info)

Metallothionein-I/II knockout mice are sensitive to acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity. (5/1789)

The purpose of this study was to examine whether intracellular metallothionein (MT) protects against acetaminophen hepatotoxicity. MT-I/II knockout (MT-null) and control mice were given acetaminophen (150-500 mg/kg i.p.), and liver injury was assessed 24 h later. MT-null mice were more susceptible than controls to acetaminophen-induced lethality and hepatotoxicity, as evidenced by elevated serum enzyme activities and histopathology. Zinc pretreatment, a method of MT induction, protected against acetaminophen hepatotoxicity in control mice, but not in MT-null mice. The susceptibility of MT-null mice to acetaminophen hepatotoxicity was not due to the increased acetaminophen bioactivation, as cytochrome P-450 enzymes, and acetaminophen-reactive metabolites in bile and urine were not increased in MT-null mice. Western blots of liver cytosol indicated that acetaminophen covalent binding at 4 h increased with acetaminophen dose, but there was no consistent difference between control and MT-null mice. Acetaminophen injection depleted cellular glutathione similarly in both control and MT-null mice, but produced more lipid peroxidation in MT-null mice, as evidenced by the abundance of thiobarbiturate-reactive substances, and by immunohistochemical localization of 4-hydroxynonenal and malondialdehyde protein adducts. MT-null hepatocytes were more susceptible than control cells to oxidative stress and cytotoxicity produced by N-acetylbenzoquinoneimine, a reactive metabolite of acetaminophen, as determined by oxidation of 2', 7'-dichlorofluorescin diacetate and lactate dehydrogenase leakage. In summary, this study demonstrated that MT deficiency renders animals more vulnerable to acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity. The increased sensitivity does not appear to be due to increased acetaminophen activation, glutathione depletion, or covalent binding, but appears to be associated with the antioxidant role of MT.  (+info)

Frequency of arrhythmias and other cardiac abnormalities in fulminant hepatic failure. (6/1789)

In a series of 106 patients with fulminant hepatic failure and grade 4 encephalopathy, cardiac arrhythmias and other abnormalities occurred in 92 per cent. The most common was sinus tachycardia (75%) and this was the only abnormality in 22 per cent of the patients. Sudden cardiac arrest occurred in 25 per cent, various ectopic beats in 20 per cent, and heart block or bradycardia in 18 per cent. Other electrocardiographic abnormalities, mostly of the T wave and ST segment, were found in 31 per cent. Cardiac and respiratory arrests were usually unrelated to each other and both frequently occurred without warning. Only 7 out of 71 patients with arrhythmias other than sinus tachycardia survived, compared with 15 out of 31 patients without them (P less than 0-005). During the latter part of the series when an arrhythmia computer was used to monitor 38 patients, it was shown that significantly lower arterial oxygen levels occurred in those with arrhythmias, other than sinus tachycardia, than in those without. They were also found to be more acidotic and hyperkalaemic, and a higher number required dialysis and ventilation. Macroscopical cardiac abnormalities including scattered petechial haemorrhages, small pericardial effusions, and fatty, pale, and flabby ventricles, were found at necropsy in 64 per cent of the patients examined. Combinations of these macroscopical abnormalities occurred, particularly in the paracetamol overdose group. Another necropsy finding of possible significance in the pathogenesis of arrhythmias was cerebral oedema, present in 48 per cent of the patients examined, and often associated with coning of the brain stem. However, 7 of the 16 patients who suffered asystolic cardiac arrests had no macroscopical abnormality of either heart or brain. In the management of patients with fulminant hepatic failure continuous cardiac monitoring is essential. Correction of the biochemical and coagulation defects may decrease the frequency of arrhythmias but studies of the mechanism and control of cerebral oedema and its relation to cardiovascular function are urgently needed.  (+info)

Gastric emptying after elective abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery: the case for early postoperative enteral feeding. (7/1789)

OBJECTIVE: To assess gastric emptying with a view to early postoperative enteral nutrition after elective abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery. METHODS: The paracetamol absorption test was used to assess gastric emptying in 13 consecutive patients at 6, 18 and 32 h following elective AAA surgery. All patients received postoperative analgesia with marcaine given via an epidural catheter during the first 48 postoperative hours. Normal emptying was defined as an area under the plasma paracetamol concentration curve at 60 min (AUC-60) of > 600 mg/min/l. RESULTS: The median time to normal gastric emptying was 18 +/- 7.7 h. One patient (7.6%) had normal emptying at 6 h, nine (69%) at 18 h and 12 (92%) at 32 h. The nasogastric tubes were removed at a median of 3.2 days after surgery, and enteral feeding was commenced on day 4. CONCLUSIONS: Gastric emptying was normal 18 h post-AAA surgery as assessed by the paracetamol absorption test. In view of the importance of maintaining an intact gastrointestinal mucosa, enteral nutrition may be commenced on the second postoperative day.  (+info)

Postoperative analgesia and vomiting, with special reference to day-case surgery: a systematic review. (8/1789)

BACKGROUND: Day-case surgery is of great value to patients and the health service. It enables many more patients to be treated properly, and faster than before. Newer, less invasive, operative techniques will allow many more procedures to be carried out. There are many elements to successful day-case surgery. Two key components are the effectiveness of the control of pain after the operation, and the effectiveness of measures to minimise postoperative nausea and vomiting. OBJECTIVES: To enable those caring for patients undergoing day-case surgery to make the best choices for their patients and the health service, this review sought the highest quality evidence on: (1) the effectiveness of the control of pain after an operation; (2) the effectiveness of measures to minimise postoperative nausea and vomiting. METHODS: Full details of the search strategy are presented in the report. RESULTS - ANALGESIA: The systematic reviews of the literature explored whether different interventions work and, if they do work, how well they work. A number of conclusions can be drawn. RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INEFFECTIVE INTERVENTIONS: There is good evidence that some interventions are ineffective. They include: (1) transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation in acute postoperative pain; (2) the use of local injections of opioids at sites other than the knee joint; (3) the use of dihydrocodeine, 30 mg, in acute postoperative pain (it is no better than placebo). RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INTERVENTIONS OF DOUBTFUL VALUE: Some interventions may be effective but the size of the effect or the complication of undertaking them confers no measurable benefit over conventional methods. Such interventions include: (1) injecting morphine into the knee joint after surgery: there is a small analgesic benefit which may last for up to 24 hours but there is no clear evidence that the size of the benefit is of any clinical value; (2) manoeuvres to try and anticipate pain by using pre-emptive analgesia; these are no more effective than standard methods; (3) administering non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) by injection or per rectum in patients who can swallow; this appears to be no more effective than giving NSAIDs by mouth and, indeed, may do more harm than good; (4) administering codeine in single doses; this has poor analgesic efficacy. RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INTERVENTIONS OF PROVEN VALUE: These include a number of oral analgesics including (at standard doses): (1) dextropropoxyphene; (2) tramadol; (3) paracetamol; (4) ibuprofen; (5) diclofenac. Diclofenac and ibuprofen at standard doses give analgesia equivalent to that obtained with 10 mg of intramuscular morphine. Each will provide at least 50% pain relief from a single oral dose in patients with moderate or severe postoperative pain. Paracetamol and codeine combinations also appear to be highly effective, although there is little information on the standard doses used in the UK. The relative effectiveness of these analgesics is compared in an effectiveness 'ladder' which can inform prescribers making choices for individual patients, or planning day-case surgery. Dose-response relationships show that higher doses of ibuprofen may be particularly effective. Topical NSAIDs (applied to the skin) are effective in minor injuries and chronic pain but there is no obvious role for them in day-case surgery. RESULTS-POSTOPERATIVE NAUSEA AND VOMITING: The proportion of patients who may feel nauseated or vomit after surgery is very variable, despite similar operations and anaesthetic techniques. Systematic review can still lead to clear estimations of effectiveness of interventions. Whichever anti-emetic is used, the choice is often between prophylactic use (trying to prevent anyone vomiting) and treating those people who do feel nauseated or who may vomit. Systematic reviews of a number of different anti-emetics show clearly that none of the anti-emetics is sufficiently effective to be used for prophylaxis. (ABSTRACT TRUNCATE  (+info)

The mechanism by which acetaminophen causes analgesia and antipyretic effect is not entirely clear. Recently a new COX isoenzyme was identified and termed COX 3. In humans this isoenzyme is most abundant in cerebral cortex and heart. Inhibition of COX-3 could represent a primary central mechanism by which acetaminophen decrease pain and possibly fever (10). An effect on of acetaminophen on presynaptic 5-HT(2) receptors in the hypocampus has been demonstrated (11) suggesting again that the primary effect of acetaminophen is in the CNS.. Many studies (12-16) described the pharmacokinetics of oral and rectal acetaminophen in infants and neonates. Yet, the data on acetaminophen concentrations in the CSF is very limited. Two studies in adults (17;18) used intravenous propacetamol and described concentrations of acetaminophen in the plasma and CSF. Acetaminophen was detected as early as 15 minutes after the administration and reached peak concentrations in the CSF at the 4th hour. A small study (19) ...
Purpose: Acetaminophen (APAP) could cause liver injury, or even acute liver failure, accounting for approximately one-half of all cases in developed countries. Once acute liver failure occurs, liver transplantation becomes the only effective remedy, which has attracted extensive attention in the public health. However, there is still little known regarding the role of lncRNA on the regulation of disease development. This study aimed to investigate the expression profile of lncRNA in liver tissue in acetaminophen-induced liver injury (AILI) mouse model, and explore their roles using lncRNA-mRNA co-expression analysis.. *Methods: APAP 300mg/kg was used for establishing the stable AILI mouse model. Mice were sacrificed at 6h and 24h after APAP administration, and fresh liver tissues were collected for histopathology evaluation and whole RNA extraction. High-throughput RNA sequencing were performed to investigate the expression profile of mRNA and lncRNA. Differential expressed genes (DEGs) were ...
Our previous studies have shown that acetaminophen (APAP)-induced hepatocyte necrosis is mediated by JNK. In the present study we show that protein kinase C (PKC) plays an important role in APAP-induced liver injury through JNK-dependent and independent pathways. Treatment of primary mouse hepatocytes with two different broad-spectrum PKC inhibitors (Ro-31-8245, Go6983), protected against APAP hepatotoxicity without inhibiting JNK activation. Ro-31-8245 treatment to mice also resulted in upregulation of p-AMPK in the liver and protection against APAP-induced liver injury in vivo, despite sustained JNK activation. APAP treatment caused a decreased p-AMPK, which was prevented by broad-spectrum PKC inhibitors. AMPK inhibition by compound C or activation using AMPK activator oppositely modulated APAP hepatotoxicity. This suggests PKC-dependent downregulation of AMPK-regulated survival pathways is an important component of APAP hepatotoxicity. In contrast to broad-spectrum inhibitors, treatment of ...
Prevention of paracetamol-induced liver injury by fructose http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 529190121KHepatic cell injury was studied in...
Acetaminophen is commonly used to treat fever or pain. Your body clears acetaminophen by processing it in the liver. During the processing, some of the acetaminophen may bind to proteins in the liver. The protein-acetaminophen product is called an adduct. After a large acetaminophen overdose, the liver has to process a lot of acetaminophen, so large amounts of adducts are formed. However, we have found that lower levels may be formed even when people take recommended doses. The purpose of this study is to measure the amount of adducts formed when healthy people who do not drink alcohol take normal doses of acetaminophen for 10 days ...

Another name for Acetaminophen Overdose is Acetaminophen Overdose. Symptoms of acetaminophen overdose are divided into stages. Stage 1 symptoms (0.5 to ...
December 5, 2005. Acetaminophen is a widely used non-aspirin analgesic in the United States. It is, in general, a very safe drug with very few side effects. This very effectiveness and safety have led to acetaminophen being an added ingredient in many cold, headache, migraine, allergy, and pain drugs. Unfortunately, although safe in normal doses, acetaminophen can cause a very deadly side effect if taken in doses that are too high. It can cause acute liver failure which can have virtually no symptoms until significant damage to the liver is done. There is a very effective treatment for acetaminophen overdose but it must be started early for it to work.. Most cases of liver damage associated with acetaminophen in adults are due to intentional overdose. For instance, the Arizona Poison Drug Information Center received notification of 2740 cases of acetaminophen overdoses in adults in the last 4 years; of these, 65% were in women (McNally, J, personal communication, 12/20/2005). There were 12 ...
Acetaminophen is a commonly used medicine for pain-relief. During cold and flu season, it is common to resort to pain-relief medicines to relieve headaches, and ache and pain symptoms associated with a cold or flu as there is no cure. However, the therapeutic range for acetaminophen is 10-30 mg/l, which is small and very easy to go over. During cold and flu season, it is important to monitor the amount of paracetamol entering your body as acetaminophen is more dangerous than suspected. At therapeutic levels, acetaminophen does not produce any adverse effects, however, long-term treatment, prolonged use, and taking a few more than the recommended dose can be severely damaging and fatal. Accidental acetaminophen overdose took the lives of 1,500 people in the U.S between 2001 and 2010. The Randox Acetaminophen assay is used to determine the concentration levels of acetaminophen in the blood to determine if an overdose has taken place.. It is commonly recognised that acetaminophen overdose causes ...
drank alcohol while taking acetaminophen products.. BACKGROUND: In January 2011 FDA asked manufacturers of prescription combination drug products containing acetaminophen to limit the amount of acetaminophen to no more than 325 mg in each tablet or capsule by January 14, 2014. FDA requested this action to protect consumers from the risk of severe liver damage which can result from taking too much acetaminophen. This category of prescription drugs combines acetaminophen with another ingredient intended to treat pain (most often an opioid), and these products are commonly prescribed to consumers for pain, such as pain from acute injuries, post-operative pain, or pain following dental procedures.. Acetaminophen is also widely used as an over-the-counter (OTC) pain and fever medication, and is often combined with other ingredients, such as cough and cold ingredients. FDA will address OTC acetaminophen products in another regulatory action. Many consumers are often unaware that many products (both ...
Activation of an ATP-depleting futile 5-oxoproline cycle may also contribute to the development of hepatic and kidney injury after acute acetaminophen poisoning. The pathogenesis of these disorders is generally attributed to the direct toxicity of acetaminophen-derived reactive oxidation products. As described above, the small fraction (approximately 5%) of ingested acetaminophen that is oxidized to NAPQI is usually detoxified by glutathione conjugation. When large acute doses of acetaminophen consume glutathione stores, the reactive and very toxic NAPQI is free to interact with multiple cell macromolecules. This damages mitochondrial and other cell membranes and structures, leading to cell injury and death (3). These toxic reactions are especially pronounced within the hepatocytes, but also proceed in other organs such as the kidney. It is also well established that hepatic ATP depletion occurs with acetaminophen poisoning and disruption of mitochondrial membranes is thought to be the major ...

Acetaminophen is a member of a class of medications called "aniline analgesics". It is also the only member of that class still available, the others were all discontinued a long time ago. There are no anti-inflammatory properties in acetaminophen, it can reduce a fever and block the sensation of pain thats all.. Acetaminophen has long been the drug of choice when treating children under 2 years of age for fever. However, it has also been associated with an increased prevalence of asthma as well as other allergic symptoms developing later in childhood when used in the first 2 years of life. Acetaminophen has significant negative effects on your liver. It has been shown to significantly decrease the amount of the antioxidant and detoxifying aid glotathione in the liver as well as other tissues. The negative effects are magnified significantly when acetaminophen is take in conjunction with alcohol or certain other medications that are toxic to the liver. Most people know that acetaminophen is ...
We recommend that health care providers consider prescribing combination drug products that contain 325 mg or less of acetaminophen. We also recommend that when a pharmacist receives a prescription for a combination product with more than 325 mg of acetaminophen per dosage unit that they contact the prescriber to discuss a product with a lower dose of acetaminophen. A two tablet or two capsule dose may still be prescribed, if appropriate. In that case, the total dose of acetaminophen would be 650 mg (the amount in two 325 mg dosage units). When making individual dosing determinations, health care providers should always consider the amounts of both the acetaminophen and the opioid components in the prescription combination drug product ...
It is especially important for patients who regularly use medicines with acetaminophen for pain conditions such as arthritis or headaches, to Double Check, Dont Double Up before taking a cold or flu medicine that also contains acetaminophen," stated pharmacist Phil LaFoy, co-owner of Blount Discount Pharmacy in Tennessee and member of the National Community Pharmacists Association, a founding organization of the AAC.

What Is Acetaminophen Toxicity?. Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in Tylenol and some other related medications that are used to treat pain and fever in people. Unfortunately, this drug can be extremely toxic (poisonous) to cats and dogs. Acetaminophen toxicity occurs when a cat or dog swallows enough of the drug to cause damaging effects in the body.. Acetaminophen is mostly metabolized (broken down and eliminated from the body) by the liver. Some of the substances that are created during this process can have harmful effects on cats and dogs. Cats are at much greater risk of toxicity than dogs because they lack certain proteins necessary for the liver to safely metabolize acetaminophen.. How Does Acetaminophen Toxicity Occur?. Many cases of acetaminophen toxicity in dogs and cats are accidental. A pet may find and chew on a bottle of pills or eat a pill that has fallen on the floor. Sadly, some cases occur because pet owners give medication intended for people to their pets without being ...

A growing number of studies have documented such a strong association between acetaminophen exposure and asthma that it is possible that much of the dramatic increase in childhood asthma over the past 30 years has been related to the use of acetaminophen. Although this possibility has been widely acknowledged,1,-,6 commentators have been reluctant, without a randomized clinical trial, to conclude that acetaminophen causes asthma and, with rare exception,7,-,9 have not recommended changes in practice. As a pediatric pulmonologist, I am entrusted with the care of many asthmatic children and, at some level, with the respiratory health of all children in my area. Given this role, I must decide when and how to act on the possibility that acetaminophen is detrimental to asthmatic children. Considering currently available data, I now recommend that any child with asthma or a family history of asthma avoid using acetaminophen.. Many observations suggest that the epidemiologic association between ...
Acetaminophen is one of the most abused over-the-counter drugs.

How should I use this medication?. Always read the product label and follow the instructions. Acetaminophen is used in many non-prescription and prescription medications, including products for cough and cold, pain relief, and headache pain. Take the smallest amount of medication that works for you. Never take more than the maximum daily dose. Take only one product that contains acetaminophen at a time. Acetaminophen is in many products and you could accidentally take too much if youre using more than one product at the same time.. Acetaminophen can be used by all age groups in recommended doses. Children (general): The dose of acetaminophen for children is based on body size. Usually, it is calculated as 10 mg to 15 mg per kilogram of body weight, every 4 to 6 hours. No more than 65 mg/kg should be given in a 24-hour period. Children should not take more than 5 doses in 24 hours unless advised by a doctor. For children under 6 months of age, consult a doctor.. Childrens liquid medications ...
For the current study, researchers led by Eric Jacobs, Ph.D., American Cancer Society epidemiologist, examined the association between acetaminophen use and prostate cancer incidence among 78,485 men in the Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. Information on acetaminophen use was obtained from a questionnaire completed at study enrollment in 1992 and updated using follow-up questionnaires in 1997 and every two years thereafter. During follow-up from 1992 through 2007, there were 8,092 incident prostate cancer cases identified. Current regular use of acetaminophen (, 30 pills per month) for 5 years or more was associated with lower risk of overall prostate cancer (RR = 0.62, 95% CI 0.44-0.87) as well as lower risk of aggressive prostate cancer (RR = 0.49, 95% CI 0.27-0.88). Current regular use of ...
Mitochondrial Permeability Transition (MPT) is reported as the mechanism of acetaminophen induced hepatic damage, however, rat models are resistant to acetaminophen induced toxicity. The occurrence and degree of mitochondrial permeability transition after treatment with 400 mg kgG1 of acetaminophen in albino Wistar rats were assessed. Animals were randomly distributed into seven groups; control, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 and 72 h based on varying time (in hour) post acetaminophen prior to sacrifice after treatment. Mitochondrial Membrane Permeability Transition (MMPT) pore opening and mitochondrial cytochrome c release were estimated. Opening of MMPT pore and cytochrome c release were observed in 12, 24, 36 and 72 h, when compared with the control group. Liver function and histological results indicated no liver damage. It is concluded that toxic dose of acetaminophen induced mitochondrial permeability transition in rat hepatic tissues without leading to necrotic damage suggesting that rat hepatic ...
Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is an effective analgesic and antipyretic. It is commonly prescribed to treat mild to moderate pain and fever in adults, children and neonates.1 Paracetamol can be administered orally, rectally or by intravenous route. It is reasonable to assume that intravenous administration improves the prediction in concentration profile compared with enteral administration, through elimination of variability in bioavailability and absorption.1 2 Due to its more predictable pharmacokinetic (PK) profile, intravenous paracetamol seems attractive to treat (pre)term neonates with pain. However, the question remains which dosage regimen has to be given. Therefore, we discuss what dose of intravenous paracetamol should be given to treat neonates with pain, taken into account current literature on both PK and pharmacodynamics (safety). ...
Acetaminophen for infants is sold under brands including Tylenol, Little Fevers, Triaminic, Pedia Care and store names and has the potential to cause liver damage and even death when taken in large doses.

The findings were published in the journal Lancet together with two other studies, which found that runny noses and wheezing early on in life may be strong predictors of asthma.. In the first study, researchers pored through data provided by parents of more than 205,000 children and found acetaminophen use in the first year of life was associated with a 46 percent higher risk of asthma by the time the children were 6 or 7 compared to those never exposed to the drug.. In North America, acetaminophen is widely sold under the brand Tylenol and is used to relieve fever, minor aches and pain. It is used in a liquid suspension for children.. Medium use of acetaminophen in the past 12 months increased asthma risk by 61 percent, while high dosages of once a month or more in the past year raised the risk by over three times.. Medium use was defined as once per year or more, but less than once a month. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Long-term diabetes alters the hepatobiliary clearance of acetaminophen, bilirubin and digoxin. AU - Watkins, J. B.. AU - Sherman, S. E.. PY - 1992/1/1. Y1 - 1992/1/1. N2 - The effect of insulin-dependent diabetes on hepatobiliary clearance of acetaminophen, bilirubin and digoxin was determined using Sprague-Dawley rats that were treated with a 45 mg/kg dose of streptozotocin 28 days before experimentation. Urinary excretion of acetaminophen was increased 280%, whereas biliary excretion was decreased 65% and total clearance was unchanged. Both steady-state volume of distribution and elimination half-life of acetaminophen were decreased in diabetic rats by 23 and 25%, respectively. Biliary excretion of glucuronide and sulfate conjugates was decreased by 75 and 50%, respectively, whereas parent acetaminophen excretion was unchanged. The glutathione conjugate was only detected in normal and insulin-treated rats; however, comparable levels of a cysteine conjugate were detected in bile ...

Posture has an effect on gastric emptying. In this study, we investigated whether posture influences the delay in gastric emptying induced by opioid analgesics. Ten healthy male subjects underwent 4 gastric emptying studies with the acetaminophen method. On two occasions the subjects were given a continuous infusion of remifentanil (0.2 mug . kg(-1) . min(-1)) while lying either on the right lateral side in a 20degrees head-up position or on the left lateral side in a 20degrees head-down position. On two other occasions no infusion was given, and the subjects were studied lying in the two positions. When remifentanil was given, there were no significant differences between the two postures in maximal acetaminophen concentration (right side, 34 mumol . L-1, versus left side, 16 mumol . L-1), time taken to reach the maximal concentration (94 versus 109 min), or area under the serum acetaminophen concentration time curve from 0 to 60 min (962 versus 197 min . mumol - L-1). In the control situation, ...
Multimodal pain management is the use of combinations of medications from different classes or medications with different routes of delivery to optimize pain relief. The adjunctive use of multiple analgesic agents is associated with better pain relief and fewer adverse effects. Intravenous acetaminophen offers a relatively low risk, safe adjunct to multimodal therapy. A comparative retrospective chart review showed that adult patients undergoing laparoscopic appendectomy or cholecystectomy surgery who received intravenous acetaminophen in the operating room had a reduced opioid requirement directly after surgery, in the post anesthesia care unit. A total of 34 doses of opioids (Fentanyl and Dilaudid) were given to the group who received the intravenous acetaminophen as compared to 65 doses of the same opioids given to the group that did not. Since only two surgical procedures were studied, the results may not be applicable to other surgical procedures. Additionally, the small sample size (60 patient

Introduction. Fever is a common symptom in children and is considered as the most prevalent cause of seeking medical treatment.1-4 Indeed, it is usually a natural reaction to many infections. However, some other factors can raise the body temperature as well.5. Parents of febrile children usually suffer from "fever phobia." This could lead to antipyretic overdose,6-8 although temperatures lower than 39 °C do not need to be treated.9-12. Acetaminophen is the most widely used drug for reducing fever in children.1,2,9,10 It is safe in standard doses of 10-15 mg/kg and could be used either rectally or orally.1-3,10. It has been shown that oral acetaminophen is absorbed within 30 to 60 min. In fact, pharmacokinetic properties of single oral dose of acetaminophen are known.13,14 Nevertheless, pharmacokinetics of its single rectal dose is not well established since its absorption is prolonged and depends on size of suppository, base composition, and rate of dissolutions.15 Moreover, some evidence ...

The infant was mildly jaundiced (day 1 of life), alert, without enlarged liver and spleen or evidence of a bleeding diathesis. Serial investigations showed a gradual fall in the serum paracetamol concentration. N-acetylcysteine was continued until the INR returned to normal. Urine output was good and the infant remained active. The synthetic function of liver showed gradual improvement with normalisation of INR at 48 hours. The infant was discharged well on day 7 of life.. Even though no guidelines on safe limits for paracetamol overdose in neonates have been established, it would be safe to use those in use for older children, while erring on the side of caution. The beneficial effects of N-acetylcysteine for paracetamol overdose have been documented in infants and children,1-3 but there is no published evidence of its use in the management of neonatal paracetamol overdose. Exchange transfusions have been used,4 5 but increase the potential for a rebound increase in blood concentrations, ...
The administration of acetaminophen 4 g/day for 3 consecutive days to newly-abstinent chronic alcoholic subjects did not result in a change in serum ALT, AST, bilirubin, or INR. Our study had 95% power to detect a 15 IU/L change in AST or ALT, a smaller change than is typically used by common definitions of liver injury [16].. This study was designed to safely maximize the opportunity to detect a potential alcohol-acetaminophen interaction. Participants had been drinking alcohol for a prolonged period and abruptly discontinued alcohol intake upon presentation to the detoxification facility. This presentation reproduces the conditions commonly cited in reports of acetaminophen injury associated with therapeutic doses in the medical literature: namely, induction of CYP2E1 and concomitant depletion of glutathione [17-20].. Hepatic injury from acetaminophen is caused by the production of a reactive metabolite N-acetyl-p-benzoquinoneimine (NAPQI). Only a small percentage of acetaminophen is converted ...

US Pharm. 2016;41(9):12.. Boston, MA-Contrary to earlier reports, asthma in young children is not worsened by acetaminophen, according to a multicenter, randomized, prospective trial conducted by Boston Childrens Hospital. Families of 300 children aged 1 to 5 years with mild, persistent asthma were randomized to give the children either acetaminophen or ibuprofen as indicated for pain or fever over 48 weeks. Both groups received the same asthma-control therapies, and medication adherence was closely monitored. The trial was completed by 75% of patients. The amounts of acetaminophen and ibuprofen used for pain or fever were similar between groups (median 5.5 doses). There were no between-group differences in asthma exacerbation or control, and researchers concluded that acetaminophen does not aggravate asthma in young children on controller therapy for mild asthma..

The FDA is recommending that healthcare professionals discontinue prescribing and dispensing prescription combination drug products that contain more than 325mg of acetaminophen per tablet, capsule, or other dosage unit. There are no available data to show that taking more than 325mg of acetaminophen per dosage unit provides additional benefit that outweighs the added risks for liver injury. Further, limiting the amount of acetaminophen per dosage unit will reduce the risk of severe liver injury from inadvertent acetaminophen overdose, which can lead to liver failure, liver transplant, and death. Cases of severe liver injury with acetaminophen have occurred in patients who: took more than the prescribed dose of an acetaminophen-containing product in a 24-hour period; took more than one acetaminophen-containing product at the same time; or drank alcohol while taking acetaminophen products. In January 2011, the FDA asked manufacturers of prescription combination drug products containing ...

Ipecac was used in cough mixtures as an expectorant or an emetic from the 18th until the early 20th century.[citation needed] For instance, Ipecac and opium were used to produce Dover's powder, which was used in syrup form.[citation needed] In 1965, the FDA approved the sale of up to one ounce of syrup of ipecac without a prescription. At the time it was approved, its use was recommended by the AAP, AAPCC, AMA, and the FDA's medical advisory board as a method to induce vomiting "for quick first-aid use in the home, under medical supervision", for use in cases of accidental poisoning.[2][3] Current guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics, however, strongly advise against this and in fact recommend the disposal of any syrup of ipecac present in the home.[4] Many toxicological associations have also issued position papers recommending against its use as a first-line treatment for most ingested poisons,[5] because of a lack of evidence that syrup of ipecac actually helps improve the ...

... (INN) (brand names Lethidrone, Nalline), also known as N-allylnormorphine, is a mixed opioid agonist-antagonist with opioid antagonist and analgesic properties.[1] It was introduced in 1954[2] and was used as an antidote to reverse opioid overdose and in a challenge test to determine opioid dependence.[3] It acts at two opioid receptors - the μ-opioid receptor (MOR) where it has antagonistic effects, and at the κ-opioid receptor (KOR) (Ki = 1.6 nM; EC50 = 483 nM; Emax = 95%) where it exerts high-efficacy partial agonist/near-full agonist characteristics.[4] Nalorphine was the second opioid antagonist to be introduced, preceded by nalodeine (N-allylnorcodeine) in 1915 and followed by naloxone in 1960 and naltrexone in 1963.[2] Due to potent activation of the KOR, nalorphine produces side effects such as dysphoria, anxiety, confusion, and hallucinations, and for this reason, is no longer used medically.[1][2][5] Nalorphine has a number of analogues including niconalorphine (the ...

In industry, EDTA is mainly used to sequester metal ions in aqueous solution. In the textile industry, it prevents metal ion impurities from modifying colors of dyed products. In the pulp and paper industry, EDTA inhibits the ability of metal ions, especially Mn2+, from catalyzing the disproportionation of hydrogen peroxide, which is used in chlorine-free bleaching. In a similar manner, EDTA is added to some food as a preservative or stabilizer to prevent catalytic oxidative decoloration, which is catalyzed by metal ions.[4] In soft drinks containing ascorbic acid and sodium benzoate, EDTA mitigates formation of benzene (a carcinogen).[5] The reduction of water hardness in laundry applications and the dissolution of scale in boilers both rely on EDTA and related complexants to bind Ca2+, Mg2+, as well as other metal ions. Once bound to EDTA, these metal centers tend not to form precipitates or to interfere with the action of the soaps and detergents. For similar reasons, cleaning solutions often ...
Assignment of a USAN takes into account practical considerations, such as the existence of trademarks, international harmonization of drug nomenclature, the development of new classes of drugs, and the fact that the intended uses of substances for which names are being selected may change.[6][7] USANs assigned today reflect both present nomenclature practices and older methods used to name drug entities. Early drug nomenclature was based on the chemical structure. As newer drugs became chemically more complex and numerous, nonproprietary names based on chemistry became long and difficult to spell, pronounce, or remember. Additionally, chemically derived names provided little useful information to non-chemist health practitioners. Considering the needs of health professionals led to a system in which USANs reflect relationships between new entities and older drugs, and avoid names that might suggest non-existent relationships. Current nomenclature practices involve the adoption of standardized ...
