  author={O. E. Fagade and Fo Oginni},
Objectives: To compare the therapeutic effects of two brands of Paracetamol: Panadol® (paracetamol 1000mg) and Panadol-Extra®( paracetamol 1000mg and 60mg caffeine) on the perception of dental pain. Method: The setting for the study was the Oral Diagnosis Unit of the Dental Hospital, Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals' Complex, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria. The Experimental design was a single blind quasi-experimental repeated measure. Twenty volunteers with healthy permanent upper…

[Placebo controlled study of analgesic activity of analgin, paracetamol and dexalgin by electric pulp sensitivity testing].
Paracetamol showed analgesic efficiency close to placebo effect and joint pain threshold was measured before and 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes after oral intake of medications using EOM-3 device.


Paracetamol Efficacy and Safety in Children: the First 40 Years
In conclusion, paracetamol remains the first-choice over-the-counter treatment for analgesia and antipyresis in children and the early treatment of overdose effective without long-term sequelae.
A search for sex differences in response to analgesia.
Both pain intensity and pain relief scores demonstrated the well-established analgesic effect of ibuprofen in the pooled data set as well as in all the individual studies, and demonstrated no sex effect on the analgesic response to ib uprofen.
Time to Onset of Analgesia and Analgesic Efficacy of Effervescent Acetaminophen 1000 mg Compared to Tablet Acetaminophen 1000 mg in Postoperative Dental Pain: A Single‐Dose, Double‐Blind, Randomized, Placebo‐Controlled Study
Effervescent acetaminophen produces a significantly faster onset of analgesia than tablet acetamine, and the pain relief was significantly better at 4 hours after administration than with effervescentacetaminophen.

Pain is the most prominent symptom of disease in man and analgesics are the most widely used drugs. More than 90% of the analgesics used belong to the so-called peripherally acting, non-opioid
Acetylsalicylic acid and acetaminophen.
Evaluation of acetaminophen and aspirin in the relief of preoperative dental pain.
Evidence is provided that acetaminophen and aspirin can alleviate dental pain better than a placebo and the feasibility of evaluating preoperative analgesic efficacy in preoperative dental pain is demonstrated.
Mechanism of acetaminophen inhibition of cyclooxygenase isoforms.
Results are consistent with a mechanism of inhibition of acetaminophen in which it acts to reduce the active oxidized form of COX to the resting form, consistent with the known tissue selectivity of acetamine.
