Cervical facet joint (CFJ) syndrome is a common disorder observed in chronic pain of the cervical region, especially in long-standing myofascial pain syndrome (MPS). This study aimed to investigate the effects of therapeutic CFJ injections on patients with long-standing cervical MPS with referral pain patterns of CFJ syndrome.
Patients with increased concentrations of plasma paracetamol at hospital presentation are at higher risk of liver injury even when intravenous NAC is promptly administered before there is biochemical evidence of toxicity.

Following institutional ethical approval and with informed consent, patients awaiting FNF surgery were randomly allocated to receive either standard opiate-based analgesia (Group 1) or a femoral perineural catheter (Group 2). Patients in Group 1 received parenteral morphine as required. Those in Group 2 received a CFNB comprising a bolus of local anaesthetic followed by a continuous infusion of 0.25% bupivacaine. For both Groups, rescue analgesia consisted of intramuscular morphine as required and all patients received paracetamol regularly. Pain was assessed using a visual analogue scale at rest and during passive movement (dynamic pain score) at 30 min following first analgesic intervention and six hourly thereafter for 72 hours. Patient satisfaction with the analgesic regimen received was recorded using verbal rating scores (0-10). The primary outcome measured was dynamic pain score from initial analgesic intervention to 72 hours later.
We compared patient responses to extended-release morphine, hydrocodone plus acetaminophen, and placebo in a randomized, double-blind crossover study using markers of abuse liability. Patients indicated their craving for drugs on 5 visual analog scales (VASs), completed the Addiction Research Center Inventory, and underwent cue reactivity testing. To perform the latter, subjects watched a video intended to produce a positive or a negative affect, after which a vial of medication was or was not presented (the cue) and then indicated their craving for drugs on 5 different VASs (the reactivity).

The purpose of this study was to determine the pharmacokinetics of codeine and the active metabolites morphine and codeine-6-glucuronide after i.v. codeine administration and the pharmacokinetics of acetaminophen (APAP), codeine, morphine, and codeine-6-glucuronide after oral administration of combination product containing acetaminophen and codeine to dogs. Six healthy Greyhound dogs were administered 0.734 mg/kg codeine i.v. and acetaminophen (10.46 mg/kg mean dose) with codeine (1.43 mg/kg mean dose) orally. Blood samples were collected at predetermined time points for the determination of codeine, morphine, and codeine-6-glucuronide plasma concentrations by LC/MS and acetaminophen by HPLC with UV detection. Codeine was rapidly eliminated after i.v. administration (T(1/2) = 1.22 h; clearance = 29.94 mL/min/kg; volume of distribution = 3.17 L/kg) with negligible amounts of morphine present, but large amounts of codeine-6-glucuronide (C(max) = 735.75 ng/mL) were detected. The oral bioavailability of codeine was 4%, morphine concentrations were negligible, but large amounts of codeine-6-glucuronide (C(max) = 1952.86 ng/mL) were detected suggesting substantial first pass metabolism. Acetaminophen was rapidly absorbed (C(max) = 6.74 microg/mL; T(max) = 0.85 h) and eliminated (T(1/2) = 0.96 h). In conclusion, the pharmacokinetics of codeine was similar to other opioids in dogs with a short half-life, rapid clearance, large volume of distribution, and poor oral bioavailability. High concentrations of codeine-6-glucuronide were detected after i.v. and oral administration.

No significant difference in pain intensity was observed between G1 and G2. Significant decreases in pain at rest and during movement and significant increases in mean flexion and extension angles were observed in both groups, with no significant difference between the two groups. The mean total amount of paracetamol used over a seven-day period was 3578 mg in G1 and 5333 mg in G2 (P = 0.2355; Mann-Whitney test).

A mixed-methods approach that included a drug information search, online survey of 55 LTC clinicians and a comprehensive literature review was used. For 41 pharmacologic antipsychotic substitute candidates identified, LTC clinicians rated the likelihood they would substitute each for patients with dementia and identified non-pharmacologic antipsychotic substitutes. The quality of evidence supporting the most likely antipsychotic substitutes was assessed using a modified GRADE approach.

Acetaminophen (paracetamol) is the most commonly used pain and fever medication during pregnancy. Previously, a positive ecological correlation between acetaminophen use and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) has been reported but evidence from larger studies based on prospective data is lacking. We followed 64,322 children and mothers enrolled in the Danish National Birth Cohort (DNBC; 1996-2002) for average 12.7 years to investigate whether acetaminophen use in pregnancy is associated with increased risk of ASD in the offspring. Information on acetaminophen use was collected prospectively from three computer-assisted telephone interviews. We used records from the Danish hospital and psychiatric registries to identify diagnoses of ASD. At the end of follow up, 1,027 (1.6%) children were diagnosed with ASD, 345 (0.5%) with infantile autism. We found that 31% of ASD (26% of infantile autism) have also been diagnosed with hyperkinetic disorders. More than 50% women reported ever using acetaminophen in pregnancy. We used Cox proportional hazards model to estimate hazard ratio (HR) and 95% confident interval (CI). Prenatal use of acetaminophen was associated with an increased risk of ASD accompanied by hyperkinetic symptoms (HR = 1.51 95% CI 1.19-1.92), but not with other ASD cases (HR = 1.06 95% CI 0.92-1.24). Longer duration of use (i.e., use for >20 weeks in gestation) increased the risk of ASD or infantile autism with hyperkinetic symptoms almost twofold. Maternal use of acetaminophen in pregnancy was associated with ASD with hyperkinetic symptoms only, suggesting acetaminophen exposure early in fetal life may specifically impact this hyperactive behavioral phenotype.

A total of 30 patients underwent supraumbilical pyloromyotomy during this period. A total of 18 received local anesthetic infiltration at the end of the procedure and 12 patients underwent ultrasound guided pre-incisional rectus sheath block for post-operative analgesia. Patients who had post-operative local anesthetic infiltration had a median (range) of 2 (1-3) doses of acetaminophen in the first 24 h. In the group of patients who received a rectus sheath block, the median (range) number of doses of acetaminophen in the first 24 h was also 2 (1-3). There were no differences in time to first feed and time to hospital discharge between the groups. The volume of local anesthetic administered was significantly smaller in the group receiving analgesia via rectus sheath block.

We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, CENTRAL and LILACS for randomised controlled trials comparing the efficacy and safety of NSAIDs with placebo for spinal pain. Reviewers extracted data, assessed risk of bias and evaluated the quality of evidence using the Grade of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation approach. A between-group difference of 10 points (on a 0-100 scale) was used for pain and disability as the smallest worthwhile effect, as well as to calculate numbers needed to treat. Random-effects models were used to calculate mean differences or risk ratios with 95% CIs.

Improvements in pain management techniques in the last decade have had a major impact on the practice of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Gonyautoxin are phycotoxins, whose molecular mechanism of action is a reversible block of the voltage-gated sodium channels at the axonal level, impeding nerve impulse propagation. This study was designed to evaluate the clinical efficacy of Gonyautoxin infiltration, as a long acting pain blocker in TKA. Fifteen patients received a total dose of 40 μg of Gonyautoxin during the TKA operation. Postoperatively, all patients were given a standard painkiller protocol: 100 mg of intravenous ketoprofen and 1000 mg of oral acetaminophen every 8 hours for 3 days. The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) pain score and range of motion were recorded 12, 36, and 60 hours post-surgery. All patients reported pain of 2 or less on the VAS 12 and 36 hours post-surgery. Moreover, all scored were less than 4 at 60 hours post-surgery. All patients achieved full knee extension at all times. No side effects or adverse reactions to Gonyautoxin were detected in the follow-up period. The median hospital stay was 3 days. For the first time, this study has shown the effect of blocking the neuronal transmission of pain by locally infiltrating Gonyautoxin during TKA. All patients successfully responded to the pain control. The Gonyautoxin infiltration was safe and effective, and patients experienced pain relief without the use of opioids.
Pharmaceuticals involved in childhood poisoning vary, and treatment of poison exposure can be a challenge for primary physicians when children are unconscious or histories are lacking. Knowledge of the clinical manifestations and prognosis of poisoning will help primary physicians perform appropriate clinical assessments. In this study, we aim to report on patient characteristics, outcomes, and clinical features of pediatric poisoning in the emergency department.

Only eight patients (2.4%, 5 during the first 25 cases and 3 following mini-laparotomy) received patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) following robotic surgery. Most patients' pain was alleviated by over-the-counter analgesics (acetaminophen, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories). In comparison to laparotomy, patients who underwent robotic surgery required significantly less opioids (71mg vs. 12mg IV morphine, p<0.0001) and non-opioids (4810mg vs. 2151mg acetaminophen, 1892 vs. 377mg ibuprofen, and 1470mg vs. 393mg naproxen; all p<0.0001).

Patients were randomized and treated with topical chamomile oil, diclofenac or placebo, 3 times/day for 3 weeks. They were allowed to use acetaminophen as analgesic. The patients were asked about their total acetaminophen use. Moreover, they were assessed in the terms of pain, physical function and stiffness by using Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) questionnaire at the enrolling and weekly.

The questionnaires demonstrated that FP and blood spotting was easy to perform and well tolerated and compared favorably with cannula sampling. Paracetamol concentrations in DBS-Can were greater than those in WB-Can (positive bias) except below 8000 ng/ml when both were interchangeable. When comparing DBS-FP to DBS-Can, both the bias and variability differed significantly across the five sampling time points.
Ibuprofen (p<0.001) and an alternation regimen with 2 drugs (p<0.001) are more often prescribed in Switzerland than in Lombardy. In front of a comfortable child whose fever has not responded to the first antipyretic, Swiss pediatricians are more aggressive than Italian colleagues (p<0.001). In a 18-month-old child, the rectal administration route of paracetamol is less often chosen in Lombardy than in Switzerland (p<0.025). Additionally, some previously identified cultural differences among linguistically different regions of Switzerland (role of reduced general appearance and perceived frequency of fever phobia) held true also beyond national borders.

A method has been developed for one-step ortho-selective ligand-directed H-D exchange, accompanied in some cases by concurrent acid-catalyzed electrophilic deuteration. This method is effective for deuteration of aromatic substrates ranging from ketones to amides and amino acids, including compounds of biological and pharmaceutical interest such as acetaminophen and edaravone. Use of a palladium catalyst featuring an NHC ligand is critical for the observed reactivity. Experimental evidence strongly suggests that palladium facilitates C-H activation of the aromatic substrates, a mechanism seldom observed under strongly acidic conditions. 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

This study examined the accumulation and metabolism of a number of drugs and commonly used probes for human cytochrome P450s (CYPs) in zebrafish larvae under conditions relevant to pharmacological and toxicological assays. Studies with cisapride, chlorpromazine, verapamil, testosterone, and dextromethorphan showed that the zebrafish larvae catalyze a range of phase 1 (oxidation, N-demethylation, O-de-ethylation, and N-dealkylation) and phase 2 (sulfation and glucuronidation) reactions. Both similarities and differences in the metabolic pathways were observed in zebrafish larvae when compared to mammals. Metabolism of phenacetin to paracetamol and dextromethorphan to dextrorphan (metabolic reactions catalyzed by CYP 1A2 and 2D6 in humans respectively) were observed in the zebrafish larvae. In addition the zebrafish larvae 7 days post fertilization (7 d.p.f.) hydroxylated diclofenac, bupropion, tacrine, and testosterone. Although metabolites of several compounds were detected in zebrafish larvae, in the instances where the metabolite amounts were quantified, the amount of any specific metabolite formed was low, accounting for only a small percentage of the amount of parent compound added. Furthermore, when the concentrations of metabolite present in the zebrafish larvae were compared with the measured level of parent compound, the metabolite concentrations were always much lower than that of parent compound. Overall, for the compounds used in the current study it is unlikely that the quantified metabolites would significantly contribute to the outcome of safety pharmacology or toxicology studies conducted in zebrafish larvae under the paradigms typically used for such investigations.
NSAIDs, except parecoxib, induce a rapid decrease of the pleural permeability by inhibiting cellular transportation, an effect that is mediated by prostaglandin synthesis inhibition.
The modified acetaminophen absorption test was a practical, minimally invasive, and reliable method to assess abomasal emptying in cattle. Metoclopramide administered at a dose of 0.1 mg/kg did not increase the abomasal emptying rate.

The results of the present study do not support the existence of a significant relationship between leptin and fibromyalgia pathogenesis. Increasing the sample size or examining the interaction between leptin and additional hormones⁄mediators of metabolism and body weight control may yet uncover significant information in this field.
