What do we (not) know about how paracetamol (acetaminophen) works?
TLDR
Paracetamol (acetaminophen), N‐(4‐Hydroxyphenyl)acetamide, is one of the world’s most widely used analgesics and its mechanism by which it produces its analgesic effect is largely unknown.
Elucidation of the Role of Poly(ADP-Ribose) Polymerase in Drug-Induced Toxicity
TLDR
Inhibition analyses determined that ALT declined significantly when DIQ was administered immediately following the initial toxicant dose for both toxicants, and was effective in reducing drug-induced hepatotoxicity and preserving organ function.
Protective Effects of Agomelatin, A Melatonin Receptor Agonist, on Paracetamol Induced Nephrotoxicity
TLDR
It has been shown biochemically that agomelatine has a therapeutic effect in preventing nephrotoxicity caused by high dose paracetamol.
EFEITO TERMORREGULADOR DOS ANTIPIRÉTICOS EM PACIENTES HOSPITALIZADOS COM LESÕES NEUROLÓGICAS: UMA REVISÃO DE LITERATURA
Hyperthermia is a febrile condition that is usually present in hospitalized patients with a conclusive diagnosis of neurological lesions of diverse origins. The increase in body temperature may
Counterfeit paracetamol tablet analysis and its discrimination using fourier transform infrared spectroscopy coupled with chemometrics techniques
TLDR
Analysis of BRAND X 500 mg paracetamol tablet samples and their discrimination prove to be significant for providing empirically robust scientific evidence for the relevant authorities to prevent increasing flooding of its counterfeit products especially in Malaysia.
Régulation des canaux ASIC par les lipides et la température – Conséquences sur les perceptions sensorielles et douloureuses
Les canaux ASIC3 (« Acid-Sensing Ion Channel 3) sont des canaux ioniques excitateurs qui appartiennent a la famille des ASIC (ASIC1-4). Ils sont actives par une acidose extracellulaire et le proton
Sensitivity of ovarian cancer cells to acetaminophen reveals biological pathways that affect patient survival.
TLDR
4 molecular signaling pathways associated with acetaminophen response that may also affect overall survival in women with OVCA are identified, including the JNK pathway, which has been previously implicated in the mechanism of action ofacetaminophen and is predictive of decreased survival in Women with OvCA.
Solid-State Analysis of Monohydrated Halide Salts of Paracetamol
Three monohydrated halide salts of paracetamol: hydrochloride, hydrobromide, and hydroiodide were obtained and crystallized in order to compare their structures in the solid state. In all the

N-Acetyl-para-aminophenol as an Analgesic
TLDR
The time has come for dogmatic teaching in the schools: in general hospitals, operate at once, if safe; anywhere else, do not operate; and it is an amusing speculation whether appendicectomy may not become a victim of the National Health Service.
THE FATE OF ACETOPHENETIDIN (PHENACETIN) IN MAN AND METHODS FOR THE ESTIMATION OF ACETOPHENETIDIN AND ITS METABOLITES IN BIOLOGICAL MATERIAL
TLDR
The analgesic and antipyretic action of acetophenetidin is exerted mainly through N-acetyl p-aminophenol which is an active analgesic but also has the potential to be a precursor of the substance which oxidizes hemoglobin to methemoglobin.
The effect on the pain threshold of N-acetyl p-aminophenol, a product derived in the body from acetanilide.
The pain threshold elevation of N-acetyl p-aminophenol, a product derived in the body from acetanilide, was assayed by cutaneous heat-radiation. The results indicated it to be an active analgesic. It
MANDELIC ACID IN THE TREATMENT OF URINARY INFECTIONS
TLDR
Since the introduction of the ketogenic diet treatment of urinary infections by Clark' and Helmholz2 in 1931 there has been ample proof of its efficacy, but many workers have been convinced of its remarkable bacteriostatic power but less impressed by the practical difficulty of carrying out the treatment.
